PIA Federal Legislative Summit
The annual PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS) is a gathering of PIA members who come together in Washington, D.C. to meet with their Members of Congress. This is your opportunity to discuss important issues with your elected officials. 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.
Brad Welle, CIC, CRM, Owner of Associated Insurance Counselors had this to share about his experiences at the FLS, “I have participated in a few PIA Federal Legislative Summits and each time at the start I think the Federal Government is too big, too many ego’s, too many agenda’s, too much partisanship. With all that after spending the day “On the Hill” I am reminded we as American’s do have a voice, our voice is heard and our efforts do make a difference. Participating in the PIA Federal Legislative Summit is a great way to make issues related to our industry known to our law makers. Face to face contact is always the best and most effective. Plus Washington DC is a place you can visit over and over again.”
The 2014 PIA FLS begins in the afternoon on Wednesday, March 26, with an in-depth issue briefing and Q&A with PIA staff to prep attendees for their meetings the next day. During the briefing everyone receives issues sheets, talking point note cards, tips for conducting successful congressional visits and other materials to aid them.
