Donations Pay Tribute to Industry Veterans, Foster Leading-Edge Research
BOSTON, Oct. 26, 2015 — LIMRA today announced this year’s honorees of the LIMRA Continuing Education Fund.
“Each year, LIMRA member companies contribute to the fund to acknowledge their veteran employees who have made a big difference,” said Robert A. Kerzner, CLU, ChFC, president and CEO, LIMRA, LOMA and LL Global Inc.
“In turn, the fund lets us develop our employees professionally so they can provide our members with even more industry insights.”
This year’s honorees are:

• Charles “Chuck” Cornelio, retired president, Retirement Plan Services, Lincoln Financial Group. Lincoln donated $10,000.
• G. Edward Hughes, senior vice president, chief sales and marketing officer, Mutual Trust Financial Group. Mutual Trust gave $7,500.
Contributions enable LIMRA’s Research and Marketing teams to be trained on innovative report writing, presentations and social media, among other areas.
LIMRA will recognize the honorees at a formal reception and dinner just prior to the beginning of the LIMRA 2015 Annual Conference, which takes place Oct. 25–27 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel in Boston.
“It’s an enduring way to acknowledge the impact financial services professionals have made — and to further the evolution of our leading research,” said Kerzner.
The fund began in 1976, and its principal now totals $158,000.
