Thank you to the more than 70 advocates who visited Capitol Hill to impress upon their legislators the importance of industry issues. Stay tuned for information on 2024’s Adviser Advocacy Day in early 2024.
Since 2007, IAA members from across the country have made the annual trip to Washington, D.C., to directly impact federal public policy. And studies show that these in-person visits have the greatest impact on a lawmaker who is undecided on an issue. In fact, 94% of congressional staffers indicated that nothing makes a bigger impression on your legislators than YOU.
IAA’s visits to Capitol Hill provide a tremendous opportunity to make an impression on your elected representatives in Congress. More than ever, you need to carry your policy priorities to legislators and their staffs in person by joining us for the IAA’s annual Adviser Advocacy Day.
Our top priorities include:
- Regulatory overreach / Cumulative impact of regulation
- Tailoring regulation for smaller businesses
- Increasing access to investment opportunities / “Accredited Investor” expansion
- Resolution of debt limit crisis
- Tax policy
- Cybersecurity / Data Privacy
- Ensuring policy is strategy-neutral
It’s critical for advisers to impress upon federal legislators our industry’s importance to the economy, to investors, to the capital markets – and to their constituents.
The reality is that no single voice carries more weight with your elected officials than your own. And, while the IAA provides the relationships, influence, and resources to advance a sound policy environment, the biggest part of this successful equation is you. Adviser Advocacy Day is your opportunity to make a difference.
