PIA has declared the entire month of August as Political Involvement and Advocacy Month - Capitol Hill in Your Backyard. PIA is asking each of its members to make an effort to engage their elected officials and Congressional candidates throughout the month of August, and targeting August 9 as PIA District Lobbying Day.

"The conventional wisdom is that nothing happens in Congress during the month of August, but that's wrong," said PIA National Executive Vice President Len Brevik. "Members of Congress are holding town hall meetings and other events in their districts, to gauge how their constituents feel about legislation. Far from being 'dead time,' the month of August is prime time for Main Street insurance agents to advance their agenda in a very effective way."

For those PIA members who are unable to schedule an in-person visit with their representatives or senators, or staff members in their offices, PIA National's Online Grassroots Action Center will enable agents to send a message showing their support for issues of paramount concern to professional independent insurance agents.
