August is PIA Advocacy Month
While Members of Congress are home in their districts for August recess, PIA is asking its members to meet with at least one of their representatives from Congress. The goal is to mobilize as many PIA members as possible to create relationships with members of Congress in order to continue the conversation about issues facing independent insurance agents here in Washington, D.C. We also encourage you to schedule a Congressional visit to your agency or attend a town hall m#191919 eeting your representative holds.
1. Contact your Representative or Senators to schedule a meeting, a visit to your agency or to find out when they're holding a town hall style event. Click here to locate the Kentucky contact information for your Representative's or Senators' district office closest to you.
