As the federal government exercises more regulatory power over financial services, the future of the insurance market is becoming dependent on agents’ ability to engage in the federal political process. The Big “I” federal government affairs team advocates for agents in Washington, but they can’t do it alone. InsurPac is the federal political action committee (PAC) for independent agents and it works hand in hand with the association’s advocacy efforts. As a multimillion dollar PAC, it is among the top one tenth of one percent of all federal PACs in terms of size and effectiveness.
InsurPac uses its size to develop Big “I” relationships with members of the U.S. House, Senate and candidates for federal office. Every day there are dozens of fundraising events happening in your nation’s capital. The entry ticket to these events is a PAC contribution. While elected officials who receive InsurPac support might not always vote with agents, it does enable the Big “I” to constantly remind officials about where agents stand on important issues. With so many competing interest groups vying for time with members of Congress, PACs help groups break through the noise.
While InsurPac is tied to the Big “I”, it cannot use any corporate funds to make contributions to federal campaigns. Therefore, it solicits voluntary, personal contributions from agents throughout the country, and then distributes 100% of that money to Congressmen, Senators and candidates for federal office who support small business and the independent agency system. Every year, thousands of individuals step up to support InsurPac with amounts ranging from $20 to $5,000. They understand that a reasonable investment today helps protect their bottom line tomorrow.
