“It is an honor to hand the presidency over to Barry Levy. He is a respected leader in the industry and at ASPPA. Barry and I have known each other and worked together for many years.

“Tax reform lies ahead. Our country is going to address certain issues, the discussion will be on qualified plans and tax incentives and we have to be prepared to make sure we have the incentives for American workers and employers to contribute for a dignified retirement. ASPPA is at the forefront of this struggle, and it is important for our members to get involved. Active members strengthen our organization and give us a stronger voice. I look forward to working with our leadership and membership during the upcoming year,” said Levy, ASPPA president.
