The Government Relations Committee has overall responsibility for the association’s legislative program, and its Political Involvement Committee (APIC) and Political Action Committee (IFAPAC). To assist with these responsibilities, separate vice chairs for APIC and IFAPAC, are appointed and separate APIC and IFAPAC subcommittees are created.
Advisors Political Involvement Committee (APIC) oversees our legislative action. When federal or state legislation hits a crucial point in the process, agents and advisors communicate NAIFA's message directly to our national and state representatives. This contact takes place in the form of letters, faxes, phone calls and face-to-face meetings in congressional districts and in Washington, D.C., as well as with our legislators in Augusta.
Chair: Kerry Peabody
The Legislative Committee works closely with NAIFA-ME Lobbyist, Dan Bernier in following current legislative activity in Augusta.
Chair: Tim Thompson
The Insurance and Financial Advisors Political Action Committee (IFAPAC) describes collectively the PAC sponsored by NAIFA at the federal level and the PAC sponsored by NAIFA-ME. Each PAC is a fund that supports the campaigns of candidates for public office who understand issues important to insurance agents and financial advisors.IFAPAC’s goal is to help the associations advance the legislative and regulatory interests of the members of NAIFA. While any U.S. citizen can contribute to IFAPAC, only members of NAIFA may be solicited to do so. Contributions must be voluntary. Contributions are not tax deductible for federal income tax purposes. Of approximately 4,600 political action committees registered with the Federal Election Commission, IFAPAC ranks in the top tier. IFAPAC is the largest insurance PAC in the country. In the last election cycle, the national IFAPAC contributed approximately $1.8 million to federal candidates and committees.
