InsurPac is the political action committee (PAC) of the national Big "I". Established in 1975 to complement IIABA's legislative program, InsurPac has become the
largest property & casualty insurance industry PAC in the country.
While the insurance industry is state regulated, and independent agents and brokers strive to maintain state regulation of insurance, there are many federal issues that affect insurance agents including flood insurance, health insurance, terrorism insurance, tax laws and business regulation.
Thank you to all who contributed to InsurPac in 2018! South Carolina raised the second most contributions of any state ($78,807) and the most from past/current presidents ($22,808). Our leadership was presented with the President's Cup Award at the IIABA Winter meeting earlier this month.
Nationally, InsurPac established a new record with a $20,000 increase over the previous year, totaling almost $1.132 million in receipts. It takes a lot of work to keep up with other industry and small business PACs, which also continue to grow.
Nationwide, 3,665 total donors invested an average of $309. 317 donors invested at the $1,000 level or higher; 53 invested at the $2,500 level or higher; and 23 invested the maximum amount of $5,000. Young agents invested a record total of $151,013 to InsurPac. These were all increases over the 2017 fundraising year.
We meant it when we said to "Give what you can," that every dollar counts, and our receipts reflect that philosophy.
Federal issues of importance this year include long-term re-authorization and reform of the National Flood Insurance Program, crop insurance, tax reform, industry regulatory reform, health care and cybersecurity. Learn more about any of these issues on our
Federal Government Affairs webpage or National's
Issues webpage (you must be logged in to view).
