2020 Ambassadors

Finseca Ambassadors are elite political leaders in the industry, dedicated to building relationships and engaging policymakers to strengthen, grow, promote and advocate for the life insurance community.

The need to build relationships with Congressional leaders is more important than ever as decisions are made on Capitol Hill that impact the 75 million families and thousands of businesses who rely on life insurance products and the insurance professionals who sell those products.

To become an Ambassador,
Finseca members must:

  • Register with Finseca team.
  • Complete at least two Congressional meetings per calendar year.
  • Contribute to the Finseca PAC and the campaign of at least one Endorsed Candidate.

Annual Ambassador levels

The combined total of your political contributions over a calendar year count towards your annual level. The Finseca Political Engagement team will work with you throughout the year to distribute your political contributions.
