The Big “I” honored IIAT member and former IIAT Chair Bob W. Shepard of Shepard Walton King Insurance Group with the 2016 Barney Burns Award for outstanding work for InsurPac at the annual Big “I” Legislative Conference in Washington, DC.
“Bob Shepard served on the InsurPac Board of Trustees for three years and continues to be actively involved in fundraising for both InsurPac and the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas political action committees,” said Lee Schilling, Big “I” government affairs committee chairman, in presenting the award. “During his time on the InsurPac Board, Bob helped Texas significantly increase its support of InsurPac and capture three National Championship Awards. Not only is Bob Shepard a prolific fundraiser and contributor, but he also serves as a key grassroots contact for a number of federal officeholders.”
