Record Young Agent Attendance Expected for IIAA National Legislative Conference

March 26, 2002

A record turnout is expected for young agents attending the 26th Annual Independent Insurance Agents of America’s (IIAA) National Legislative Conference, April 10-12 at The Capital Hilton in downtown Washington, D.C.

The 2002 conference marks the seventh annual Young Agents Luncheon Presentation and Tour at the National Legislative Conference.

The luncheon will feature prominent speakers from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) who will give young agents and brokers the inside scoop on this year’s campaigns, what’s hot and happening in both the House and Senate, and share strategies to get involved. For the first time, InsurPAC Chairpersons from across the country will join young agents for this luncheon presentation.

The first day of the National Legislative Conference features two other events planned especially for young agents: an exclusive tour of the U.S. Supreme Court and a hospitality suite in the evening. During the conference, hundreds of agents and brokers will meet with their congressional members on Capitol Hill.

Throughout the past 25 years, independent agents and brokers attending IIAA’s annual legislative meeting have heard from many prominent political leaders, including the past three sitting Presidents—Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and Bill Clinton-and former Vice President Dan Quayle.

Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.), an influential leader on insurance issues in the U.S. Senate and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Michael G. Oxley (R-Ohio) lead the speakers docket for the 2002 Big “I” legislative meeting.
