Insuring America PAC is Critical to APCIA's Advocacy

As the premier property casualty political action committee, Insuring America PAC is the core part of our industry's presence in Washington, D.C. and in all U.S. state capitals.

The purpose of Insuring America PAC is to promote the interests of the employees of the property casualty insurance industry through the political process. The PAC supports candidates and policymakers who champion our industry's public policy issues and who appreciate the contribution our member companies make to a vibrant economy.

This website is your resource to get more information about Insuring America PAC's activities and to learn about the candidates we support. We welcome your feedback. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to strengthen our efforts on your behalf. Please contact Bridget Sewell, Assistant Vice President of Political Engagement, at 202-639-0498 or bridget.sewell@apci.org for more information or to see if you are eligible.

Insuring America PAC Board & Contributions Committee

Insuring America PAC Guiding Principles

The Insuring America PAC Guiding Principles document guides the Insuring America PAC Board of Directors and the Insuring America PAC Contributions Committee when making federal election contribution decisions. Ten percent of Insuring America PAC funds are allocated for political activity at the state level. The Insuring America PAC Board of Directors recognizes that the political environment is dynamic and, therefore, delegates an appropriate amount of flexibility to the Insuring America PAC Contribution Committee when making federal disbursement decisions. Issues or requests not addressed within this framework are referred to the Insuring America PAC Board of Directors for consideration.
