Make Your Voice Heard - Invest In Your Future
Now, more than ever before, your voice needs to be heard in Washington D.C. and Lincoln! By the fact that as an independent agent, you work and make your living in one of the most heavily regulated industries in the country, you are involved in politics. Every year, laws are passed and regulations promulgated that impact your clients and affect your abililty to make a living. Sitting it out is not an option for any of us. If you are in the insurance business, you are in politics!
The reality is that even the best lobbyists and effective grassroots action can't get the job done without our ability to speak with a unified voice through our two Big "I" Political Actions Committees - InsurPac (Federal) and IIANPAC (Nebraska). Effective lobbying and well-funded PACS go hand-in-hand. At the end of the day, PACs are able to speak with a collective voice that is much louder than that of an individual. Your political investment allows your presence to be felt as you stand shoulder-to-shoulder with numerous special interests - some hostile to the insurance industry.
By pooling money together, your Big "I" PACS help elect candidates who share the Big "I" business philosphy. In the 2016 election cycle, InsurPac supported more House and Senate campaigns than ever before, and distributed $2,147,000 along the way to 280 races, winning 266 of them for a an amazing 95% victory rate. And IIANPAC had a 70% victory rate in 23 Unicameral races - races were close for the seven IIAN-endorsed candidates who did not win, including five agent-friendly incumbents.
InsurPac is the Political Action Committee (PAC) of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA). It represents the unified political voice of IIABA's 22,000 member agencies and 300,000 agents and brokers nationwide. It is one of the largest property-casualty insurance industry PACs in the country, and is one of the primary reasons the Big "I" is routinely rated among the most successful lobbying groups in Washington, DC. InsurPac raises funds for contributions to candidates for national office on behalf of independent agents.
IIAN's political action committee was established to help assure the election of candidates to the Nebraska Legislature and Administration who are responsive to the needs of independent agents. Nebraska's IIANPAC backs winning candidates 90% of the time. For more information, contact IIANPAC Treasurer Carol McClelland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
