Mark Your Calendars! For the fifth year in a row, PIA will bring political advocacy for agents back to Main Streets across the country. PIA designates each August as Political Involvement and Advocacy Month. As part of PIA Month, District Lobbying Day is planned for August 17, 2010 during the annual Congressional recess as a way of focusing PIA member advocacy efforts. August 17 is a target date -- the goal is to get as many PIA members as possible to schedule appointments to have a conversation with their elected officials or staff members in their offices. August 17 isn't the only day in August to schedule your lobbying - it's simply PIA's "target date." The point is, just do it.

Have a question? Contact Mike Becker, PIA National's director of federal affairs, at mikebe@pianet.org or (703) 518-1365.
