PIA Prepares for 2019 Federal Legislative Summit
PIA members will bring their concerns directly to Congress when they converge on Washington, D.C. from April 2-3 for the 2019 PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS). The annual legislative summit is a gathering of PIA members from around the country who come together to meet with their members of Congress and advocate for their positions on issues of importance to Professional Insurance Agents.
“PIA’s advocacy is based on doing the hard work that produces real results,” said PIA National Executive Vice President & CEO Mike Becker. “Members of Congress who may not be familiar with our issues turn to their independent agent constituents for the expertise they need to craft good legislation and avoid bad proposals. PIA has a proud history of always taking the strongest position to back independent agents, even if that means going at it alone. That kind of advocacy by PIA members and our government relations staff produces positive results for PIA members and for independent agents generally.”
PIA National is the only association to outright oppose reauthorization attempts that would have cut the NFIP Write-Your-Own reimbursement rate, which would have had a direct and negative impact on agent compensation and thus on consumers.
