The most important voice to members of Congress, state legislators, and local officials is the voice of a constituent. NAMIC advocates work every day in Washington, D.C., and in all 50 state capitals across the country to advance the cause of mutual property/casualty insurance, but we need your help to protect our mutual future.
Below, learn how to become involved, whether it is taking 30 seconds to fill out an action alert or even deciding to take to the halls of Congress via the Congressional Contact Program.
Working together, we can protect our industry today and for future generations by educating our representatives on the effects their decisions have on our companies, our policyholders and our industry.
Many NAMIC members have connections with elected officials – friendships, political support, business interactions, or shared involvement in the community. By sharing them with NAMIC, you help NAMIC connect friendly faces with the issues affecting the mutual property/casualty insurance industry and help deliver on policies that will allow our industry to flourish.
These relationships don’t have to be strong or overly formal; a connection of any kind is a good starting place.
The easiest, and quickest, way to take action is to email your elected officials about an issue that matters to you. By signing up and participating in NAMIC action alerts, you let your representatives know what matters to their constituents and educate them on those issues.

Started in the mid-1980s, NAMIC’s Congressional Contact Program (CCP) is a world-class advocacy operation that is widely known within the insurance world as the industry’s premier grassroots program. CCP participants can meet face-to-face (or virtually) with their congressional representatives and staff to directly voice their concerns as constituents regarding federal legislation and issues that affect the property/casualty insurance industry. There’s no substitute for the constituent interacting with their elected officials and putting a face on a policy debate.
CCP is a fun, valuable experience for NAMIC members. If you are ready to come to Capitol Hill and speak out for our industry, please fill out this form and a NAMIC team member will reach out to you about registration and the date your state is visiting our nation’s Capital– virtually or in person.
