IIABA National Legislative Conference Runs April 21-23

January 15, 2004

The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) has scheduled its 28th annual National Legislative Conference for April 21-23 at The Capital Hilton in downtown Washington, D.C.

The event, which always features leading national decision-makers, will bring hundreds of independent agents and brokers to the nation’s capital to meet with their elected representatives at the conference and in visits to Capitol Hill offices.

The conference provides an opportunity for agents and brokers to discuss important issues with their congressional representatives. Top issues this year include insurance regulatory modernization, tort reform, passage of a flood insurance reform bill, and changes in the tax treatment of intangible assets.

Highlights of the National Legislative Conference will include an in-depth issues briefing session; the annual IIABA congressional reception on Capitol Hill; appearances by numerous high-profile speakers discussing important insurance and national issues confronting lawmakers as well as agents and brokers in Washington, D.C.; and hundreds of meetings on Capitol Hill between IIABA agents and brokers and lawmakers.

This event, in past years, has included as speakers the past three sitting presidents—Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. The conference’s speakers list has included the last three Speakers of the House—current Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), and former Speakers Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and Tom Foley (D-Wash.). This year’s National Legislative Conference speakers will be announced as confirmations are received.
