Why Every Agent Should Donate to IMPACT

The IIAT Government Affairs of Chief Legislative Officer Lee Loftis and Government Affairs Director Regan Ellmer have been busy at the Texas Capitol representing the interests of independent agents. When they provide testimony about insurance-related issues at the Texas Legislature, committee members listen. Legislators know Lee and Regan, trust them, and value their opinions.

The relationships the IIAT Government Affairs team builds with elected officials is vital to protecting our industry. These relationships often start with IIAT making a political contribution to a candidate.


“It's vital to our industry to give to IMPACT. That is why we encourage all our team to contribute. The state political process is something that affects our entire organization. Even the smallest donation can help.”“ Frank Swingle, Swingle Collins & Associates
“Donating to IMPACT is important because it supports pro-business candidates who keep insurance agents’ interests in mind. The connection between legislators and groups like IIAT is an important one. Legislators often rely on industry professionals to understand key issues.“ Rep. Mary Ann Perez,
“I always make it a point to remind our employees this time of year about IMPACT and its role in supporting the industry. Our employees really appreciate and understand the importance of having a strong government affairs team working on our behalf!“ Travis McDavid, GSM Insurors
