If INSURANCE is your profession,
POLITICS is your business!

Never before has there been such a need for lawmakers (both federal and state) to hear from us about the invaluable services we provide to their constituents, our clients.  This event is held for you to meet with them; the State Representatives and Senators in your district.  January 29 is your opportunity to shake hands with these elected officials in their Olympia legislative offices and make sure they know you and learn how to call upon you when they are faced with important decisions about this great industry.

Following the morning session (details below) you will have the opportunity to meet with your legislators.  If you do not know who your elected officials are you can find your state legislators and their contact information here.  If you have never setup a meeting with your legislator or need material or information on how to conduct a legislator meeting the NAIFA Association Political Involvement Committee (APIC) has a list of resources available online.

This event is jointly presented by NAIFA Washington and the Washington Association of Health Underwriters (WAHU).
