“Legislators can’t possibly know everything about all issues. We have a choice – sit back and watch, or help them make the right decisions. We strive to be a part of the solution instead.“ Mickie Comiskey, CIC, COO, Focus Insurance & Financial Services

What is a political action?

A political action committee or PAC is a group that is formed to give money to the political campaigns of people who are likely to make decisions that would benefit the group's interests.

Why should I support IMPACT?

We cannot afford to ignore government decisions that have profound effects on the independent agency system in Texas. Your contributions and participation in the political process are needed to ensure IIAT members continue to compete, innovate, and grow.

IMPACT funds help support pro-business candidates and elected officials who understand the importance of a vibrant independent insurance agency system in Texas. IMPACT’s strong reputation helps IIAT form productive relationships with state legislators who support the interests of independent agents.

What does IMPACT do?

IMPACT is your vehicle for political success as an independent agent. IMPACT collects voluntary contributions from independent insurance agency principals, producers, customer service reps and other staff members across the state.

These funds are pooled and contributed on a nonpartisan basis to candidates for public office who support the interests of independent insurance agents and the insurance industry. A full 100 percent of every dollar raised stays in Texas for state and local elections.

Facts about IMPACT

  • All fundraising efforts throughout the state are administered by the IMPACT Board, IIAT governmental affairs staff and IMPACT Regional Vice Presidents.
  • Funds are disbursed on a nonpartisan basis to both Democrats and Republicans and are based on issues that promote IIAT’s legislative agenda.
  • IMPACT is one of the largest trade association PACs in Texas.

Does IMPACT buy votes?

No. Candidates and public officials are honorable people whose votes are not for sale. But by helping elect business-minded public policy decision-makers, IMPACT assures independent insurance agents the opportunity to present our views and be heard.

IMPACT fully complies with all state and federal election law.

“Over the years I have seen how vital IMPACT is to all of us in the Texas insurance industry. From minor to major legislation, IIAT has our backs. Everyone needs to contribute, even a small amount.“ Frank Swingle, Founder & CEO, Swingle Collins & Associates

Can we count on your support?
