"Insuring the Future of Professional Insurance Agents"
I am looking forward to serving as PIAPAC’s Chairman during this upcoming election cycle. PIAPAC will be supporting Congressional candidates who work toward protecting the interests of independent insurance agents and small business owners.
This year, 2015, we saw Congress come together in a bipartisan manner to support issues such as renewing the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA), the creation of National Association of Registered Agents and Brokers and the repeal of a provision of the Affordable Care Act that would change the definition of the small group market that would have decreased stability in the insurance industry.
PIAPAC gives us the chance to show our support for those candidates that fight for our interests on Capitol Hill.
We are working hard to ensure that pro-business, pro-insurance legislation is being passed this year. But we need your help to continue to be a force in Washington, DC. Will you continue to stand with us?
Thank you for your support of PIAPAC!
