Legislative Advocacy, Compliance & PAC

WSIA advocates on behalf of members to preserve and enhance their position in the market. With the support and direction of our Legislative Committee and Board of Directors, we represent our members before state and federal legislators, insurance regulators and other important groups influencing and impacting the compliance and business practices and procedures of the surplus lines insurance industry. Our mission is to implement or maintain actions that are consistent with our policy positions, governing principles, and objectives that lead to more uniform and efficient requirements to allow the most effective business operations within our industry. 

WSIA’s legislative efforts are also advanced by the WSIA PAC, which is committed to supporting candidates for the U.S. House and Senate whose philosophies and attitudes are consistent with the goals of WSIA, the surplus lines industry and the wholesale distribution system. The WSIA PAC receives contributions from employees of WSIA members who support the PAC goals. The PAC does not solicit any other individuals. The WSIA PAC website is intended for the use of WSIA member employees only. You can learn more about the PAC on the WSIA PAC website.
