R. Keith Brandstedter II, President of Glatfelter Specialty Benefits and Regional Vice President of VFIS, has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI). CFSI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan policy institute created to educate members of Congress about the needs and challenges of our nation's fire and emergency services.
“I'm honored to have had the opportunity to work with fire service organizations for nearly a decade to help them establish meaningful benefits for their members, including working towards instituting Cancer Coverage legislation in several states and offering benefits that support firefighters and their families during some of their darkest days,” said Keith. “Being able to further support these special people through the important work of CFSI is truly a privilege—and I hope we’re able to work together to help ensure that those who give so much to their communities are given the training, funding and resources they need and deserve.”
We congratulate Keith on his new role and are excited to see the positive impact he'll continue to make in the fire service—both with VFIS and CFSI. Congrats, Keith!
