PADIC’s Mission

PADIC’s mission is to provide a collective voice and serve as a resource for the support of small to medium size property and casualty insurers domiciled in California. PADIC serves as an advocate for the specific needs of its members on various regulatory and legislative issues and serves as a communication bridge between its members and the California Department of Insurance. In addition to being consumer oriented with local knowledge of California issues and serving as an advocate for its members, PADIC also provides members educational opportunities and useful information on regulatory issues.
