$1,000,000.00 in 2009 Donations to InsurPac...MIIAB Reaches It's State Goals!
Please see the following memo from Minnesota InsurPac Chairman Larry Brustad:
It is with great excitement and sincere appreciation to each of you that I convey this message: InsurPac has eclipsed the one million dollar mark in 2009! It has truly been a team effort to achieve this remarkable level and goal. Nearly every state has stepped up big by hitting their goal and, in many cases blowing way past it!
It took InsurPac over two decades to achieve its first goal of becoming a one million dollar PAC per election cycle (2 year) by doing so in 2004. I'm proud to tell you that it has taken only 5 years to achieve one million dollars in a calendar year (and hopefully $2 million for the election cycle). While receipts have recently declined for several other financial services PACs, InsurPac has seen consistent growth. That message is being heard loud and clear throughout the halls of the U.S. Congress. It affirms the power, perseverance and importance of the independent agent.
Your strong support and dedication to this million dollar mark will greatly assist your federal lobbying efforts in the months and years to come.
As the Minnesota PAC Chairman, I would like to thank those MIIAB members who supported the fundraising activities over the last year so National and Minnesota could reach its goals. Below are the individuals who contributed to InsurPac this year from Minnesota. I also would like to specially thank the Young Agents Committee for their fundraising efforts this year.
