2017 State Legislative Day

We at the Michigan PIA are dedicated to keeping our industry updated on the latest development of public policy and furthering the interest of Professional Insurance Agents and small businesses. It is for this reason on April 27th, 2017 we will be hosting our Legislative Day.

This event will be held again in the Mackinac Room located on the 5th floor of the Anderson House Office Building in Lansing, Michigan. We hope to see many of you there to interact and hear first hand what is going on within the State of Michigan concerning the interests of the Independent Agent. Find out what Michigan PIA is doing on your behalf, and pose your questions to our speakers.
