Join the IIABCal Delegation at the Big "I" Legislative Conference

Each spring, Big “I” independent insurance agents and brokers unite in Washington, D.C. to speak with legislators who will be voting on issues that affect independent agencies and their clients.

IBA West is organizing a delegation of members to attend the Big “I” Legislative Conference & Convention April 13-15 in Washington, D.C. and educate members of Congress, including the more than 100 new legislators, on issues important to the independent agency system. If you are interested in attending or have already decided you plan to go, please contact Patty Lombard at IBA West so we can coordinate appointments and other California delegation activities. You can reach Patty by email at or by phone at 323-937-9907.

The Big "I" will conduct an issues briefing, provide talking points and the “Where We Stand” brochure so attendees will have plenty of information to speak with one voice.  The Big “I” makes it easy for novice and seasoned agents to have a unified presence. Be part of this one-of-a-kind event and protect your industry.
