PIA members will reconnect Main Street with Capitol Hill when they convene March 26-27 in Washington, D.C., for the 2014 PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS). The annual PIA Federal Legislative Summit is a gathering of PIA members from around the country who come together in Washington, D.C., to meet with their Members of Congress.

“Laws passed by Congress have a direct impact on the ability of our members to serve the insurance needs of their customers,” said PIA National President John G. Lee. “Health insurance, flood insurance and the continuing threat of federal encroachment into our industry are all among the issues that concern us. It is essential that we continue our campaign of advocacy on behalf of Professional Insurance Agents, our clients and the American free enterprise system.”

During the 2014 PIA Federal Legislative Summit, PIA members will advocate on a host of issues. Members will attend a legislative briefing on the afternoon of March 26, in advance of the next day’s Capitol Hill visits. The briefing will cover several issues that Congress is currently focused on: flood insurance, healthcare and insurance regulation. The briefing will also include overviews of Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA) renewal, crop insurance and other priority issues for many Members of Congress from various districts.
