In November 2013, the IMCA Government Relations Committee (GRC) made its second annual pilgrimage to Washington, DC, along with several IMCA board members. On November 19, the GRC hosted a reception in the Cannon House Office Building with Congressman Rick Nolan (D-MN) and guest speaker George Miller (D-CA), ranking member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, the House committee that oversees pension regulation.

Three other members of the House of Representatives, senior staffers, and other Washington VIPs also attended the event. The attendees had the opportunity to learn about IMCA and its dedication to promoting qualified and ethical investment management and consulting services, and to hear from congressmen Nolan and Miller on the issues of the day in Congress.

“I was very pleased with the turnout and interest expressed in the work of IMCA members,” said IMCA volunteer chair Betsy Piper/Bach, who had asked Congressman Nolan to host the event. “It was enlightening for both congressional staffers and our members to exchange ideas and learn more about each other’s views regarding trends in the financial services industry.”

On November 20, GRC members met with individual senators and representatives from their own districts. The meetings included members of both parties and focused principally on IMCA’s certification work and a corresponding interest in learning legislators’ views on issues affecting the industry.
