Mr. Gallant is the owner of the Gallant Insurance Agency in Acton
Both the Big “I” and the MAIA announced, this past week, that Massachusetts independent insurance agent Ray Gallant received the 2015 Bernard J. Burns Award during this year’s Big “I” Legislative Conference. The Big “I” Conference held in April of each in Washington, D.C. is a change for independent insurance agents from around the nation to come to Capitol Hill to lobby and inform the government on a wide range of insurance issues affecting the independent insurance agency system.
According to the Big “I”, InsurPac “…is the federal political action committee (PAC) for independent agents and it works hand in hand with the association’s advocacy efforts. As a multimillion dollar PAC, it is among the top one tenth of one percent of all federal PACs in terms of size and effectiveness.”
“Ray Gallant tirelessly promotes the importance of InsurPac and has made huge strides in increasing participation by Massachusetts agents since he became the state’s InsurPac chair three years ago,” said Schilling in presenting the award. “With Ray at the helm, Massachusetts recorded the second highest number of total InsurPac donors last year. He also leads by example—100% of his agency’s employees chose to follow his leadership and donate to InsurPac in 2015.”
