PIA National — PIA Advocacy Day is BACK!!!

PIA National says it is excited to resume the large, in-person, PIA National Advocacy Day Event. The advocacy day events are scheduled for Tuesday, May 9 and Wednesday, May 10, and are the same week as PIA National’s annual mid-year leadership conference.

No event sponsored by PIA National is more informative, and more important, than the annual advocacy day. That’s the day PIA members get to meet with their members of Congress in the Senate or House, or — at the very least — with important staff members, and advocate for issues critical to their own businesses, insurance business in their states and important insurance issues.

Some background.

In 2022, PIA implemented a series of year-round advocacy events, which gave agents the chance to meet virtually with federal policymakers on the issues that matter most to them. These rolling fly-ins were critical in advancing the interests of PIA members on our most pressing issues of focus, even as Capitol Hill’s heightened access restrictions persisted, due to the pandemic and security concerns.

Thankfully, the access restrictions were substantially lifted beginning with the 118th Congress on January 3rd, paving the way for the return of larger, in-person advocacy events like PIA’s annual Advocacy Day.

So save those dates!

On Tuesday, May 9, attendees will gather at the Westin in Old Town Alexandria to prepare for their congressional meetings, which will be held on Wednesday, May 10.

As part of that preparation, PIA National will be hosting two policy panels in the afternoon on flood insurance and crop insurance. Those sessions will feature stakeholders involved in both issues.

The panels will be followed by an issue briefing with details, background, and the very latest information on the status of critical insurance issues and those important to the independent agency system.

The day will close with a welcome reception.

The next day, Wednesday, May 10, buses will transport you to Capitol Hill for your morning meetings. We have reserved an area at the Capitol Hill Club for you to stop in and relax between meetings; the Capitol Hill Club space will be available from approximately 10:00am to 3:30pm.

Then, our Capitol Hill Reception, also at the Capitol Hill Club, will begin at 4:30pm.

Registration for Advocacy Day (as well as registration for the separate PIA Spring Leadership meetings to be held later that week) will open in the coming weeks!

In the meantime, for more information, please contact Jon Gentile at jgentile@pianational.org or your state affiliate executive.
