2015 National Legislative Conference
April 23, 2015, five of us from Oregon represented the IIABO at the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America’s Annual Legislative Conference in Washington D.C.  This is a huge event and this year over 1,200 agents participated.
The goal of the Legislative Conference is to demonstrate the extensive grassroots strength of the Big “I “.  We visited the offices of each of our representatives in the House and both Senators.  Among other things we discussed with them the importance of state regulation, the role of the agent in the distribution of health insurance, the need for modernization and a permanent fix for the Federal Flood program and simplified agency licensing.
