Members of PIA from around the country came to Washington, D.C., on April 6 and 7, to participate in a time-honored tradition, petitioning their elected representatives. The agents took part in a successful 2016 PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS).

Participants visited with their Representatives and Senators on Capitol Hill, advocating for PIA’s positions on a range of issues including encouraging Congress to defend state regulation of insurance, protect a strong and stable crop insurance program, provide a long term authorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), and reinstate fair and just compensation in healthcare.

On the opening day, an issues briefing was conducted, followed by a reception hosted by PIA’s agency-company council, The PIA Partnership, and a fundraising dinner for the Professional Insurance Agents Political Action Committee (PIAPAC). After a kickoff breakfast the following morning, PIA members made their way to Capitol Hill for a day of advocacy visits with their members of Congress.

“PIA’s annual legislative summit is an important part of our year-round program of legislative advocacy,” said PIA National President Robert W. Hansen, Jr. “Our members are grateful for the positive reception we received from our lawmakers and we look forward to continuing to work with them to advance our legislative priorities.”

PIA thanks our FLS sponsors, Platinum sponsor The PIA Partnership; Gold sponsor ADM Crop Risk Services; Silver sponsors Liberty Mutual Insurance, Nationwide Independent, State Auto Group, The Hartford; and Bronze sponsors The Motorists Insurance Group, the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) and Wright Flood.
