2009 PIA Federal Legislative Summit: April 1 and 2, 2009This week, members of PIA will converge on Washington, D.C. for the 2009 PIA Federal Legislative Summit. The FLS will be held April 1 and 2, 2009.

The FLS begins April 1 with an orientation session followed by an in-depth legislative briefing conducted by PIA government affairs staffers, held at the Marriott Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia, PIA's headquarters hotel. On April 2, summit participants will gather for a breakfast program featuring a keynote address by Norm Ornstein, a political analyst and resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, along with an exclusive video interview with Dr. Therese M. Vaughan, CEO of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), conducted by PIA National's CEO Leonard C. Brevik.

PIA members then head to the House and Senate for a full day of scheduled meetings with lawmakers in their offices. At day's end, a reception for all summit participants will be followed by the annual fundraising and awards dinner of the PIA Political Action Committee (PIAPAC).

"PIA's legislative summit is particularly important this year, because we are opposing the efforts of advocates of federal regulation of insurance to portray their ideas as reform measures that will strengthen insurance regulation," said PIA National President Kenneth R. Auerbach, Esq.
