FAIA's 2014 Legislative Fly-In will be held March 25–26 at the Hotel Duval in Tallahassee. Fly-In is where agents learn first-hand about issues and
legislation that could affect their business and the industry’s future. And it’s
where they can help advance FAIA’s legislative goals by meeting with key legislators to share concerns or support.
Young agents arrive a day early for the Young Agents Council Political Summit, where they dial for InsurPac dollars and receive an crash course in the legislative process.
For 2014, you can expect to see a
Department of Financial Services bill focused on insurance agent and agency
licensing. Other issues of interest that should show up in various
legislative packages include property insurance, Citizens reform, and flood
Greg Thomas, director of the Division of Agent and Agency Services at the Florida Department of Financial Services, will be the guest speaker during Tuesday's Issues Briefing. Greg will talk about issues he deals with daily in the regulation of insurance agents and agencies, including licensing, compliance, investigation, and enforcement.
