Mass. Agent Hofmann Honored By Nation’s Agents for Legislative Work

The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (the Big “I”) has honored a longtime Massachusetts agent leader for his legislative accomplishments.

Belmont, Mass. agent William Hofmann III, CPCU, CLU, AAI, CIC, LIA, was presented the Sidney O. Smith Award for his tireless work in promoting the legislative goals of the Big “I” and its political arm, InsurPac.

The Big “I” group presented the award during its recent National Legislative Conference and Convention.

Hofmann earned the Sidney O. Smith Award honor for his tenure as chairman of the InsurPac Board of Trustees, and a past president of the Big “I”, a national board member, and during his long service in many other capacities at both the state and national levels.

Under his leadership, InsurPac reached the $1 million mark in an election cycle for the first time in its 30-year history. Hofmann has worked hard to educate independent insurance agents and brokers as to the importance of PACs in the political process, according to the group.

“Bill Hofmann is a great leader, the consummate cheerleader for the independent agency system, and he sets a great example for his colleagues,” says Nathan Riedel, Big “I” vice president for political affairs. “He has provided many years of invaluable service to his association and his fellow agents and brokers, and he is a deserving recipient of this prestigious award.”
