Florida advocates for the rights of professional insurance
PIA of Florida holds advocating for agents as one of our nearest and dearest responsibilities. Whether it is making sure that your commissions are protected, your professional regulations are reasonable, there is a fair and open market to foster a greater range and options for products, or simply improving the overall climate for insurance in the state of Florida, PIA is here for you!
We understand that the majority of Florida's agents operate as small businesses and provide a critical service for their clients in helping them to understand and protect themselves against their risks at an affordable price. It can sometimes be a difficult and thankless task, but that is where we stand with you, in the trenches, working tirelessly to make it easier for you to survive.
Our advocacy program is as mature as the association itself and is lead by an amazing team of professional advocates at Smith, Bryan, & Myers, one of Tallahassee's premiere government relations firms.
Together, we provide a vision, goals, and the muscle to ensure that our message is heard everywhere, including the Governor's office, the chambers of the Legislature, at the Office of Insurance Regulation, at Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, and at the Florida Department of Financial Services as well as the Chief Financial Officer's office, to name a few.
Agents Political Action Committee
PIA of Florida's PAC supports lawmakers of all political parties who understand and act on the issues affecting insurance professionals. Through your support, we are able to elect those who understand the complicated world of insurance and have the political acumen to improve the climate for the benefit of all Floridians.
