2019 PIA Federal Legislative Summit


The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents held their annual PIA Federal Legislative Summit in Washington, D.C. this past month. Casey Lane Jr., past president of the Young Insurance Professionals of Louisiana (YIPs), attended the event for the second year in a row.

Over the two day event, insurance professionals from around the country gathered together to meet with legislators. Lane says “Our goal was to meet with all our legislators to make them aware of important insurance issues that pertain to the state of Louisiana.”

The meetings took place on Capitol Hill and Lane’s delegation met with various officials from Louisiana’s congressional districts including representatives from Sen. Kennedy, Rep. Higgins and Rep. Richmond’s offices. “This particular event is extremely important, as it is a golden opportunity to meet face to face with the powers that be in Washington to help affect change for the benefit of the people in our state,” said Lane.

Lane joined YIPs in 2009 when he entered the insurance industry and joined the Board of Directors in 2010, where he has served since.
