big ‘i’ presents insurpac awards

InsurPac, the Big “I" political action committee (PAC), raised $1,269,794 during the 2022 calendar year, surpassing its previous high from 2021. Yesterday, the Big “I" presented a slew of awards at the 2023 Big “I" Legislative Conference, including the presentation of the annual InsurPac National Championship and Eagle awards. 

This year's winners include: 

InsurPac National Championship Award (South Carolina): The award goes to the state whose agents contribute the most money for InsurPac in a calendar year. Collectively, Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of South Carolina (IIABSC) agents contributed $112,544 to InsurPac. 

Young Agent Championship Award (South Carolina): The award honors the state whose young agents donate the most money to InsurPac. Young agents from South Carolina contributed $36,035. Overall, young agents invested a total of $184,552 to InsurPac. 

InsurPac Eagle Awards (awarded to 18 states): The awards recognize states that surpass a fundraising average of $100 per member agency. The states and average per member agency amount are as follows: 

  • South Carolina ($376) 
  • North Dakota ($189) 
  • Nevada ($181) 
  • New Hampshire ($146) 
  • Idaho ($129) 
  • Arkansas ($123) 
  • Maryland ($122) 
  • Tennessee ($121) 
  • Georgia ($119) 
  • South Dakota ($114) 
  • Connecticut ($113) 
  • Louisiana ($111) 
  • Nebraska ($110) 
  • Montana ($107) 
  • Kansas ($105) 

Also, Riedel was pleased to announce three first-time Eagle Award winners: 

  • Indiana ($104) 
  • Alabama ($100) 
  • Kentucky ($100) 

“Every state association, regardless of size, has the opportunity to win this award and there's no cap on how many we hand out," Riedel said. “In fact, if every state were to achieve InsurPac Eagle status, we would be a $4 million PAC." 

InsurPac Catalyst Award (Iowa): This award recognizes the state that shows the most progress in areas of InsurPac innovation and participation. This year's winner increased donations by 30% and finished with $35,600 in contributions. 

“This state [Iowa] is perhaps more connected to their congressional delegation than any other state," Riedel said. “They can count two U.S. Representatives as members of the Big “I" family. And they use this to remind donors and potential donors of the good work that InsurPac does to elect our friends to Congress."
