Arkansas FLS MeetingMembers of PIA from around the country came to Washington, D.C., on March 25 and 26, to participate in a time-honored tradition, petitioning their elected representatives. The agents took part in the 2015 PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS), which was a success!

Participants spent two days visiting with their Representatives and Senators on Capitol Hill, personally advocating on behalf of Professional Insurance Agents, their clients and the American free enterprise system. During the summit, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) received the 2015 PIA National Legislator of the Year Award (see next item).

On the opening day, an issues briefing was conducted, followed by a reception hosted by PIA's agency-company council, The PIA Partnership. After that, there was a fundraising dinner cruise on the Potomac River for the Professional Insurance Agents Political Action Committee (PIAPAC). The second day featured a kickoff breakfast, along with a full day of Capitol Hill visits.

"Our annual legislative summit is an important part of PIA's year-round program of legislative advocacy," said Scott Liebert, chairman of the PIA National Legislative Affairs Committee. "There is no better way to forge and maintain relationships with lawmakers than to do it in person."
