Our annual legislative fly-in not only provides opportunities to move our legislative agenda forward, it incorporates the expertise and participation of our working groups. It’s all about moving the needle.
The Council’s annual Legislative & Working Groups Summit is a unique two-part forum that brings together our member firms’ CEOs and executive teams as well as the heads of various departments within those member firms. Participants are welcome to join the portion of the meeting that is most relevant to their position/organization, or stay for the entire program.
Fewer than 7% of all 535 Members of Congress have worked in the insurance industry, and educating them on how their decisions may impact our industry and their constituents is more vital than ever. Our longstanding Legislative Summit is an opportunity for our members to connect with the senators and representatives that have a seat at the table for important discussions related to commercial. This year, due to continuing visitor restrictions on Capitol Hill, our typical legislative agenda has been converted to a morning program where you will hear from multiple Members of Congress and special guests focusing on how the issues of the day are affecting our industry.
Our Working Groups Summit provides time for peer exchange and collaboration for CIO, Claims & Risk Management, HR, Legal Counsel, and Marketing & Communications professionals. The timing of this Summit, which occurs in tandem with our Legislative Summit, allows for Working Group attendees to also gain insight into lawmakers’ views of the industry and how legislative developments may impact their organization’s strategic priorities over the coming year.
