On September 1, PIA participated in the first of a series of webinars related to the release of the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). The series focuses on how government should develop and implement protection plans under the new guidance of the NIPP.

The information gained from these sessions is sent to FEMA regional offices, as well as state and local government officials, to support coordination and alignment among them in all planning efforts. Many PIA members either sit on, or are citizen experts for, their community's planning broads. Since insurance is considered a critical industry in this effort, the federal government requested input from PIA agencies.
