Grassroots

Why Should You Get Involved?

Estimates have the number of registered lobbyists in Washington alone at more than 35,000. That is more than 65 lobbyists for each of the 535 Members of Congress! Yet a Member of Congress places a premium on what is best for constituents like you. After all, it is your vote that puts that legislator in office, and its your vote that can remove them from office. Members of Congress must be made aware that their actions are being closely monitored by the voters back home. That is why citizens like you are such a powerful force.

There are many ways you can get involved at the grassroots level:
  • Participate in ACTION ALERTS when you receive them from your state executive and/or IIABA.
  • Attend town hall meetings.
  • Attend fundraisers.
  • Participate in the Big "I" Legislative Conference. The next one is April 27-29, 2022.
  • Be a Key Contact. Let the Big I national office know if you have a personal relationship with a Member of Congress.
  • Be active with your $2.4 million federal political action committee (PAC), InsurPac.

What Are the Benefits of Getting Involved?

Participating at the grassroots level provides benefits for YOU and your agency. As a grassroots activist, you will become more knowledgeable about the issues affecting your industry, acquire a more thorough understanding of the political and legislative process and develop a commitment to action. Most importantly, your participation will help protect the future of independent insurance agents and brokers.
