AGA Committee

The Advocacy and Government Affairs (AGA) Committee is the restoration industry’s first unified advocacy team and supports RIA's strategic pillar of advocacy. It seeks to unite the restoration industry and advocate for the best interests of restoration contractors nationwide, and develop and implement strategies to help create and maintain equity between restorers and insurers and their partners. The AGA committee will advocate for the financial and legal interests of restoration contractors, while working collaboratively and fairly with insurers and the other stakeholders involved in the restoration process.
