Wednesday, during the Big “I" Legislative Breakfast, Charles Symington, Big “I" president & CEO, presented Big I New York with the 2023 Maurice Herndon Award. The Maurice Herndon award is given every year to the state association that has done exemplary work on legislative issues and government affairs the previous year.

“This year's recipient achieved new fundraising levels for both InsurPac, our federal PAC, and their state PAC," Symington said. “They've had very strong participation at the Legislative Conference and strengthened grassroots relationships with key members of their congressional delegation. And on the state level, our winners successfully defeated legislation that would've banned all noncompete agreements and also made favorable changes to cybersecurity regulations."

Big I New York members were in attendance to accept the award. Pictured from left to right: Nick Masterpole, Scott Hobson, Ron Burnell, Lisa Lounsbury, and Ted Walsh with Charles Symington. 

Advocacy on behalf of members at both a state and national level is something we take very seriously. We're incredibly grateful to have a community of independent agencies who rally together to stand up for our industry and the communities we serve. Our agencies should be proud of what we have been able to achieve in the last year. 2023 and 2024 are banner years (hello, historic photo inspection WIN).

THIS association has your back. Even when others back down, we keep advocating for our members.
And we always will.
