Committee Charter

The PAC Committee raises awareness within the WSIA membership regarding the efforts and focus of the WSIA PAC. The federal PAC was established in 2005 and is critical to WSIA’s legislative and regulatory advocacy efforts. The PAC Committee supports candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate whose philosophies and attitudes are consistent with the goals of WSIA, the surplus lines industry and the wholesale brokerage system.

WSIA members who are interested in supporting the PAC and learning more about its goals should visit the WSIA PAC website.
