YBA Political Summit Wrap-Up

By Rob Oates, YBA Committee Member

The YBA Committee held its 5th Annual Political Summit on March 23, 2011, sponsored by Norwood & Associates.

The 2011 Summit had a great turnout to hear Assemblyman Jeff Miller, John Howard, Managing Editor of Capitol Weekly, John Norwood, principal at Norwood & Associates and Steve Young, IBA West SVP and General Counsel. As always, the event provided participants with a broad view of the ever-changing political landscape in California as it relates to our industry and the business community, as a whole.

The afternoon session was spent at the Capitol, where participants were able to meet directly with their legislators or legislator’s staff. These meetings enable attendees to have conversations regarding the insurance industry, as it relates to brokers and agents, on current, pending or upcoming legislation. The grass roots efforts of the participants and IBA West’s lobbying efforts continue to have an impact our industry.

Thank you to all the participants who made the 2011 Political Summit a success We look forward to seeing you next year.
