American Council of Life Insurers
The American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) is a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying and trade group for the life insurance industry. ACLI represents 300 insurance companies that account for 90 percent of the U.S. life insurance industry's total assets. According to its website, ACLI represents "legal reserve life insurance companies and fraternal benefit societies operating in the United States before federal and state policymakers, insurance departments, and the courts."
Since 2010, former Governor of Idaho Dirk Kempthorne has served as the organization's president and chief executive officer. He succeeded former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating, who led ACLI from 2002 through 2010.
