PIA National Executive Vice President & CEO Len Brevik added his observations to the plethora of predictions for 2008, in Insurance Journal magazine ["Closer Look: Wishes and Predictions," Insurance Journal, 12/24/07].

Brevik said he wishes "that the next time TRIA comes up for renewal, lawmakers will not wait until the stockings are hung by the chimney with care before passing the legislation." He also wishes that "Congress will realize that the state system of insurance regulation is very successful and turn a deaf ear to those agitating for federal insurance regulation." Lastly, he hopes that in 2008 "college students will realize what a great career choice being an independent insurance agent and working for an independent insurance agency is."

Brevik predicts that in 2008 Congress will not pass an optional federal charter. He also predicts that the National Conference of Insurance Legislators will grow in stature and influence under determined leadership. And lastly, that "the recent trend of captive carriers switching to the independent agency distribution system will continue." He says that an increasing number of captive agents will decide to go independent.
