Vision Statement

The Florida Insurance Council’s vision is to be the premier organization representing the insurance profession in Florida.  The Council will be the recognized and preferred source of information on insurance matters including economic, legislative, regulatory, and consumer issues.

The Florida Insurance Council is the vision and voice of Florida’s insurance community. 

Today's Florida Insurance Council is the evolutionary product of the development, growth, and merger of three separate state insurance trade organizations the Florida Association of Domestic Insurance Companies (FADIC), the Florida Insurance News Service (FINS) and the Florida Insurance Council (FIC). In 1994, key insurance leaders recognized the potential benefit of bringing the three organizations together, and the merger effort began. The groups' similar missions and goals created a natural fit, and the result is the new Florida Insurance Council --- a strategically integrated insurance trade dynamo that serves the industry with a single, powerful voice.

The Florida Insurance Council was established in 1962 to represent the insurance sector in legislative, regulatory, judicial and executive branch forums.

The Council is now Florida's largest company trade association, representing 31 insurers groups - consisting of 236 companies - which write over $35 billion a year in premium volume and provide all lines of coverage. Council members hold more than 90 percent of the market share in residential and private passenger automobile coverage. 

The Council not only represents the industry in legislative and regulatory matters, but in judicial and executive branch forums as well. Additionally, FIC tracks, analyzes and communicates all public policy developments to members via state-of-the-art technology. FIC educates the media, consumers and the general public on the business of insurance. The Council is the key contact for the insurance industry in Florida's landmark Emergency Management-Insurance Community Cooperation Pact, which ensure swift claims handling following a hurricane or other catastrophe.

See what FIC members have to say about their association:

Because FIC is the voice of the insurance community in Florida. Florida Farm Bureau Insurance is a member of FIC to support our fair share of the needed efforts for all of the insurance community.

"We believe that membership in a strong trade association is critical to the appropriate representation of our views to the levels of government that regulate our business. An association provides a scale of economics that provides representation of views to the state government and believe that the sharing of costs to represent those views are well spent in supporting the excellent job done by FIC" - Sunshine State Insurance Company
