Allison Koppel joined the American Fraternal Alliance in 2006 and currently serves as Chief Operations Officer.
The organization represents 63 not-for-profit fraternal benefit societies composed of nearly 8 million individual members nationwide. Alliance member societies provide a variety of financial services products – primarily life insurance and annuities – to their members, along with a host of other member benefits. Equally important, member societies contribute millions of dollars in direct aid and millions more hours of volunteer service to a wide range of community service projects and charitable organizations in all 50 states. In fact, fraternal benefit societies make up one of America’s largest and most cost-effective volunteer networks.
Allison is responsible for monitoring the organization’s strategic initiatives as they relate to meeting the association’s mission and for managing the Alliance’s risk management plan in order to mitigate likely or impactful risks. She also oversees the daily operations of the membership, public affairs and IT departments. Allison works closely with the Alliance Board of Directors and several Task Forces and Advisory Groups. She is the key contact for Associate Membership and for the Sponsorship Program, both of which enhance societies’ relationships with business partners crucial to the long-term survival and success of fraternal benefit societies.
A Michigander and an MSU graduate, Allison lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband and two small children and enjoys golfing, gardening and cooking with her extra time.
