This is a critical year for independent insurance agents, according to PIA National President Thomas C. Adderhold, who says that agents need to get personally involved to protect their business interests. A good way to do that is to attend the 2012 PIA Federal Legislative Summit, he emphasized.

“We all know that 2012 is a critical election year, both for the future of our country and the interests of professional insurance agents,” said Adderhold. “Our summit this year occurs as many issues with the potential to affect agents’ bottom lines remain in focus on Capitol Hill. That’s why this is no time for agents to sit on the sidelines.”

The Summit will begin on March 21 with a legislative briefing for participants, held at the Marriott Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia, PIA’s headquarters hotel. The following morning, March 22, participants will begin their day with a breakfast program featuring remarks by PIA leaders and Members of Congress, followed by a full day of scheduled meetings with lawmakers in their Capitol Hill offices. At day’s end, a reception will be held, followed by the annual fundraising and awards dinner of the PIA Political Action Committee (PIAPAC).
