Our mission at The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers is to protect and advance your bottom line. And our political action committee, CouncilPAC, is an essential tool for pursuing that mission on Capitol Hill. CouncilPAC strengthens our ability to influence the outcome of legislative and regulatory debates, but we need your help.
Why is my engagement so critical?
Less than 5% of the 535 Members of Congress have direct experience in the insurance industry, which underscores the importance of education with a strong and consistent message on the complex issues facing our industry. CouncilPAC is an essential tool to support those Members of Congress who champion our industry and ensure they remain in Congress.
CouncilPAC cannot operate without your support and personal contribution. The effectiveness of our PAC is directly correlated with the earnest engagement of all of our members. A unified voice is a powerful voice.
