Forty risk management professionals, more than half of which were first-timers, attended this year’s Legislative Summit held June 9-10 in Washington D.C. The focus of this year’s event was the pending expiration of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act. Attendees met with over 50 Congressional offices, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, to urge quick passage of a long term TRIA extension. These meetings were critical in voicing the position of RIMS and the impact TRIA’s pending expiration is having on the commercial insurance consumer.

On the first day of the event, attendees participated in educational sessions on the TRIA issue and lobbying dos and don’ts. That evening, attendees were joined for dinner by Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT), who spoke to the group on the importance of being politically active and motivated.

"Attending this event has become one of my favorite Society events. Not only do you have the opportunity to meet fellow risk managers and RIMS members, it is a real life civics lesson on how the Federal government works. Being able to better understand the Society’s legislative platforms and having the opportunity to explain to members of Congress why these issue are important to the Society and the risk management community becomes a very tangible value of membership and advocacy. If you have an interest in these topics, I highly recommend attending. It will provide a different perspective of how the democratic process works."

"On my last visit, I met with a member of the House leadership.  As it turns out, we had a common acquaintance.  The Congressman was a regular guy and understood our issues.  He already was backing one piece of legislation and agreed to sign onto another of RIMS' supported legislation."
