Political Engagement Month

The 2021 Legislative Session begins on March 2, 2021. This year, FAIA has canceled our Capitol Days event as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead we'll be hosting our first Political Engagement Month; a series of virtual events to help agents get politically engaged leading up to and throughout Session 2021.

Registration is free for FAIA members and includes access to all of the month's programming.

We're excited to feature interactive sessions and messages from FAIA's legislative team, elected officials, regulators, and industry experts. These speakers will share their goals and insights on what to expect during the 2021 Legislative Session, and the FAIA team will be on hand to answer questions and help members connect to the issues and their local elected officials.

Recordings of each session are available through the ABEN Classroom. Log in to get caught up!
