Committee Charter

The PAC Committee raises awareness within the NAPSLO membership regarding the efforts and focus of the NAPSLO PAC. NAPSLO established a federal PAC in 2005 and is critical to NAPSLO’s legislative and regulatory advocacy efforts. The PAC Committee supports candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate whose philosophies and attitudes are consistent with the goals of NAPSLO, the surplus lines industry and the wholesale brokerage system.

NAPSLO members who are interested in supporting the NAPSLO PAC and learning more about its goals should visit the NAPSLO PAC website.
