Agents for Change is comprised of more than 7,000 insurance agents and brokers working together to reform insurance regulation. Under a national insurance charter, producers could choose to continue under the existing state-based licensing and regulatory structure or they could choose to be licensed and regulated by one entity (the federal government). Allstate fully supports modernizing the 19th century state-based insurance regulations because it would create a vastly more efficient regulatory system.

McKenna was also invited to attend the company’s Leader’s Forum 2010, and was nominated for Allstate’s Ray Lynch Community Service Award, which recognizes agency owners dedicated to making positive contributions in the communities they serve.
