IIAN Legislative Advisory Council & Ambassadors

Day at the Capitol 2023-slider.jpg 

The IIAN Legislative Advisory Council enables IIAN members to support the advocacy efforts of the Independent Insurance Agents of Nebraska.  As a Council member you will provide valuable feedback to the IIAN Legislative committee to help guide IIAN's activity and position on multiple legislative issues.

Legislative Advisory Council

As a member of the council you will:
  • Review current insurance related legislation being considered by the IIAN Legislative committee.
  • Provide feedback to the Council and the Council Chair on issues impacting your agency and potential legislative action that may impact IIAN members.
  • Act as a conduit for IIAN members who wish to provide feedback on legislative issues to the Legislative committee.
  • Attend Legislative Advisory Council conference call meetings.
  • Support IIAN grassroots efforts by contacting your local Senator, U.S. Congressional representatives and the Nebraska Governor when you receive grassroots alerts from IIAN.
Four virtual meetings per year to discuss top priority legislative issues and proposals.
Opportunities to attend legislative events held throughout Nebraska including town hall meetings, visits to the capitol, Senators receptions and issues briefings. 

IIAN Ambassadors

The purpose of the Ambassador program is to create a trusted advisor relationship between elected officials and the independent insurance agency community.
In addition to the requirements of the Legislative Advisory Council, Ambassadors will be required to meet the Senator in their local district, and then meet with them personally during the year to discuss insurance issues.  (If you do not know your Senator, the IIAN staff and board will help facilitate the introduction.)
Ambassadors will:
  • represent IIAN when discussing insurance related issues with elected officials,
  • be expected to be well informed on top priority issues being considered by the IIAN legislative committee,
  • expected to participate in capitol visits, Senators' receptions and issues briefings.
