ARA Launches Women in Retirement Council

Issued by: American Retirement Association [ARA]

Date: Aug. 26, 2020

ARLINGTON, VA (August 26, 2020) -- On Women’s Equality Day, the American Retirement Association is proud to announce the creation of a Women in Retirement Council to provide stewardship and support of Women’s Issues within the organization. 

Women’s Equality Day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting the right to vote to women.  Long a proponent of, and advocate for, women’s voices in the retirement plan industry, the nation’s leading education, advocacy and information source for retirement plan professionals has officially formed a council drawn from across the organization’s five member associations to help bring focus to the current and future efforts to support and retain women in the retirement plan industry.  

The Council will: 

  • Support current efforts (like the Women in Retirement Conference (WiRC) and ARA Thrive Women’s Mentoring Program) and encourage the development of new endeavors within sister associations.  
  • Provide a central point and location for the sharing of lessons learned, best practices, content, and resources across sister associations.  
  • Develop strategic goals to guide ongoing tactical projects that support the recruitment and retention of women in the industry.

The inaugural leaders of the ARA’s Women in Retirement Council, representing each of the ARA’s five member associations – the American Society of Enrolled Actuaries (ASEA), the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries (ASPPA), the National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA), the National Tax-deferred Savings Association (NTSA) and the Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA) are: 

  • Council Chair: NAPA:  Nicole Corning, CFP®, AIF®, CRPC® 
  • ASEA:   Lynn M. Young, MSEA 
  • ASPPA:  Shannon M. Edwards, ERPA, QPA, QKA, APA, APR 
  • NTSA:   Kristine Coffey, CPC, CPFA, CRES 
  • PSCA:   Marjorie F. Mann, Esq.

“While the ARA has continuously supported and sponsored events and accolades that acknowledge the contributions of women in the retirement industry, we are pleased at the commitment of so many women among our membership to provide this perspective and support on an on-going basis throughout the year,” noted Brian H. Graff, CEO of the American Retirement Association.
