New York Life Insurance Co. announced that Kathy Davenport has been elected president of the company’s Agents Advisory Council (AAC), the group of New York Life agents that present agent viewpoints and issues to the company’s executive management.  Davenport serves as President for the term that began Jan. 1, 2009, and ends Dec. 31, 2009.   Davenport, a New York Life agent serving the New Orleans area for more than 20 years, is the first woman president of the AAC. The AAC meets twice yearly to discuss issues of concern to agents with New York Life’s Chairman and senior executives.    “As president of the AAC, Kathy is the voice of the agents putting forth their ideas to the company’s top decision-makers,” says Mary Dean, VP of New York Life’s Women’s Market Division. “New York Life agents value this organized council and it is a testament to Kathy’s talent and skill to be elected to such a position. Her experience and expertise are great assets to our team of agents, and we look forward to her tenure as president.”   The AAC is comprised of 24 New York Life agents who have attained a certain level of success called Council level. Fellow New York Life Council-level agents elect AAC members yearly. The AAC meets bi-annually, in April and November, to discuss with the company’s management issues that are presented to AAC members by the more than 10,500 New York Life agents throughout the year.   “I am honored to be elected as the new president of the AAC,” says Davenport. “The strength of the AAC lies in the two-way dialogue and the dedication of its membership. I look forward to working with fellow agents and executives for a very productive 2009.”
