He is a past president of the Greater Kansas City Association of Independent Insurance Agents.  He currently is on the Board of Directors of the Missouri Association of Insurance Agents and is Chairman of The Government Relations Committee.  His committee has been involved in recent legislation in both Jefferson City and in Washington DC.  Chris feels that it is extremely important to be up to date and current on insurance issues that affect his clients.  Chris lives with his family in Liberty.
