The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America says U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services Chairman Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., will address the Annual Leadership Luncheon just prior to the IIABA’s Legislative Conference & Convention.

“Chairman Bachus has a long track record of standing up for small business and independent agents,” says Robert A. Rusbuldt, IIABA president and chief executive officer. “Our members are politically active and engaged on issues that impact the industry and consumers. We are truly honored that he will be meeting with the Big I leadership team.”

Bachus is currently serving his tenth term representing the Sixth Congressional District of Alabama in the central part of the state. He is the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, which holds jurisdiction over the banking, securities, insurance, housing, and domestic and international monetary policy sectors.

Bachus is a native of Birmingham, Ala., and graduated from Auburn University and the University of Alabama School of Law. Prior to his election to Congress, he was a practicing attorney and served in theAlabamastate legislature.

Charles E. Symington, Jr., IIABA senior vice president for government affairs says a few of the issues the association and Bachus have worked together on include terrorism insurance, the National Flood Insurance Program, financial services regulatory reform and agent-licensing reform.

The event will be held at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, April 24.
