Your Day in Albany is Right Around the Corner
Your day in Albany to bring our industry's message to legislators - is just around the corner. Hosted by Big I New York, this one-day event is your opportunity to tell legislators face-to-face about the real issues that impact your customers and your livelihood. You don't need to be an expert; you can show your support with your presence.
Big I New York will provide you with all the information you need to discuss the important issues, including scaffold law reform, improvements to the workplace safety program, and proposed regulatory amendments that could have a devastating impact on members selling life insurance. Legislators listen when their constituents take the time to come to Albany. Don't leave it to someone else...the more who attend from every part of the state, the better represented we are.
When you come to Albany, there will be an informative briefing to provide you with the latest information, along with detailed handouts that include talking points for each issue. Most groups appoint a spokesperson to lead the discussion.
