AmCham China is very honored to host Mrs. Susan K. Neely during her visit to Beijing this November.
Susan K. Neely is the President and CEO of the American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI), the nation's leading trade association dedicated to providing products and services that contribute to Americans' financial and retirement security. As president and CEO, Neely drives public policy and advocacy on behalf of ACLI's member companies that represent 95 percent of industry assets and serve 90 million families.
Neely has long been recognized as a leading voice in public policy and advocacy in Washington, D.C. She served as Special Assistant to President George W. Bush and helped create the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and later became the first DHS Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs.
Neely was a Senior Executive at the Association of American Medical Colleges and the Health Insurance Association of America (HIAA), where she designed award-winning national advocacy programs and initiatives, like HIAA's ground-breaking Harry & Louise campaign.
Prior to association leadership, Neely was a Senior Adviser to Gov. Terry Branstad of Iowa, now the U.S. Ambassador to China. She was one of the first women nationally to manage a statewide campaign, re-electing Branstad in the middle of the farm crisis when land values had dropped 63 percent.
Neely has been named Trade Association CEO of the year by two different national organizations. She is a past chair of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Association Committee of 100 of the largest trade associations and the American Society of Association Executives.
