2017 National Legislative Conference In Review

Member agents make their mark in D.C. 

This year's Big "I" National Legislative Conference was attended by over 1,000 independent insurance agents from across the country and over 30 member agents from Delaware and Pennsylvania. Widely considered to be the year's biggest political event for insurance agents and brokers, the NLC provides a prime time opportunity for voices to be heard and issues addressed. All attendees were briefed by staff before descending on Capitol Hill to meet with their elected officials.

On Thursday, May 4, attendees visited a total of 16 congressional offices and met with members of both the House and Senate as well as their staff. Critical issues were discussed and follow-up meetings in the districts were suggested.

We give a sincere thanks to our friends at Travelers for their generous sponsorship of our legislative dinner on May 3.

Agents spoke directly to members of congress about the most important national issues impacting the insurance industry, agents and their clients, including:

  • National Flood Insurance Program
  • Health Care Reform
  • Tax Reform
  • Insurance Regulatory Reform

IA&B plans to keep the ball rolling and momentum building by scheduling in district visits with congressional members. Dates, times and locations of the meetings will be posted in Agent Headlines, and interested persons will be encouraged to contact us directly if they wish to attend.
