Your Virtual Journey
A new and innovative way to conduct political grassroots advocacy for independent insurance agents and brokers, the Emerging Leaders "Virtual" Political Summit eliminates the time and expense of agents & brokers traveling to the state Capitol in Sacramento to get their voices heard.
By combining live, interactive technology with face-to-face In-District legislative meetings, Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of California will make it easy for independent agents and brokers to join the association’s grassroots advocacy team and help deliver important legislative messages to California legislators.
On Friday, April 13, 2012, independent insurance agents and brokers learned how the California legislative process works, were briefed on key insurance broker and agent legislative issues, and will use that knowledge to meet with their state representatives.
In the convenience of their own offices, independent insurance agents and brokers will take a Virtual Journey through the Political Process:
