Members of PIA will bring Main Street to Capitol Hill when they convene March 25–26 in Washington, D.C., for the 2015 PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS). It is a gathering of PIA members who come together to meet with their members of Congress. During the 2015 PIA Federal Legislative Summit, PIA members will advocate on a host of issues, with a prime focus on healthcare, tax reform, and insurance regulation. In addition, many PIA members will engage their lawmakers on crop insurance, flood insurance, and many other issues.

"A new Congress always brings with it new opportunities," said PIA National President Richard A. Clements. "Issues that have not been at the forefront in recent years, such as tax reform, have a real shot at movement now." Clements said early indications are favorable for passage of legislation backed by agents.

The 2015 PIA Federal Legislative Summit begins on the evening of Wednesday, March 25, at the Crystal City Marriott in Arlington, Virginia, PIA's headquarters hotel, with an in-depth issues briefing session and Q&A to prepare attendees for their congressional visits. The day ends with a reception hosted by PIA's agency-company council, The PIA Partnership, as well as a fundraising dinner cruise on the Potomac River for the Professional Insurance Agents Political Action Committee (PIAPAC).

The following morning, March 26, PIA members will gather for a kickoff breakfast before making their way to Capitol Hill for a day of advocacy visits with their members of Congress.

PIA's presence on Capitol Hill sends a strong message to Congress that agents won't sit on the sidelines while important legislation moves through Congress. We hope that you will join us for the FLS this year! For more information and to register, visit the FLS webpage at www.piafls.com.
