What is the PAC?

The PAMIC PAC was founded in 1979 to form a grassroots coalition of PAMIC's membership. The original name for the PAC was the Pennsylvania Mutual Institute for Legislative Action but was changed to the PAMIC PAC to reflect the values of the association and its members more appropriately. 

The PAC provides advocacy for members in three ways:

  • PAMIC works with legislators and regulators on a personal basis assuring your issues are heard

  • PAMIC provides accurate, timely and relevant information regarding regulatory and legislative issues

  • PAMIC advocates for you on a grassroots basis by connecting and engaging you with elected officials and policymakers

The goal of the PAC is to make a real impact for our member companies through action. Currently, we are focused on the issue of exam costs and how they affect small and large insurers.

The success of the PAMIC PAC relies heavily on our generous donors. Donations to the PAC support elected officials who understand the needs of the mutual insurance industry, allows our association to have a unified voice and keeps the mutual industry strong and engaged. 

PAC events range from golf outings and cigar and cognac receptions to wine and casino nights. PAC events are spontaneous and will be announced when registration is open.

All donations to PAMIC PAC should be made through either a personal credit card or personal check. Corporate contributions are prohibited.

PAMIC PAC Corporate Leader Campaign

Corporate Leader Campaign Helps Support PAMIC's Advocacy Efforts

Throughout PAMIC’s history, the association has built a reputation for successful legislative representation of the mutual industry through financial support of elected officials.

The PAMIC PAC Corporate Leader Program commences January  and runs through March of each year. 

Why Should You Contribute?

  • To help support elected officials who care about our industry.

  • To amplify PAMIC’s message of developing laws and regulations that make sense and help us compete.

  • To stay invested in the legislative and regulatory process.

  • Support your company’s grassroots efforts as an individual contributor. Each contribution of $100 earns points toward our grassroots recognition awarded at the Annual Convention.

Recent Successes:

  • Act 41 of 2018 dealing with the Insurance Departments use of contractors, and in bringing common sense to the exam, the process became law giving us greater visibility and control over the exam process.

  • Act 68 of 2018 dealing with the Uniform Construction Code allowing for the swifter adoption of construction standards allowing for more resilient structures.

  • Act 111 of 2018 correcting a constitutional issue addressing the use of the American Medical Association guidelines to determine injured worker impairment ratings.

  • Act 117 of 2018 ensuring the Insurance Departments solvency accreditation related to Corporate Governance and limiting the Department’s use of outside vendors in reviewing these disclosures.

Current issues include:

  • Reforming Homeowner insurance policy renewals to eliminate the non-renewal notice requirement when making changes to your homeowner policies

  • Updating the regulations dealing with custodial investment agreements and allowing the use of “broker/dealers” - potential cost savings to you.

  • Pushing for “Storm Chaser” consumer protections against predatory roofing and siding contractors for our policyholders when significant weather events occur.
