WSIA PAC

The WSIA PAC 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. WSIA member employees can contribute to the PAC online.

Distribution cost analysis available to members

A recent Conning analysis of distribution costs concludes that wholesale distribution does not increase the cost of the transaction to the insured. The report, and accompanying FAQs, are available to WSIA members.
