The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA)

The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) represents independent Professional Insurance Agents in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. Our members are local Main Street Agents who serve their communities throughout America. PIA members realize the importance of an organization that advocates on their behalf and enables them to stay informed, educated and connected to other insurance professionals. They also benefit from the many business-building tools that only an organization with the size and experience of PIA can offer. PIA supports them so they can be the professionals that today’s and tomorrow’s customers demand Serving Agents Since 1931 PIA was founded with objectives that are as relevant today as they were back in 1931:
  • Educate agency owners and staff about insurance concepts;
  • Keep agents informed about changing company offerings;
  • Allow agents to assist one another in proper underwriting of their business;
  • Increase cooperation between carriers and agents;
  • Encourage uniform policy writing and assist in proper form completion;
  • Advocate for agents in legislative matters;
  • Foster acquaintanceship among agents so they could support one another

The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA)

The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) is a national alliance of 300,000 business owners and their employees who offer all types of insurance and financial services products.

Unlike company-employed agents, IIABA independent insurance agents and insurance brokers represent more than one insurance company, so they can offer clients a wider choice of auto, home, business, life, health coverages as well as retirement and employee-benefit products.

IIABA agents and brokers not only advise clients about insurance, they recommend loss-prevention ideas that can cut costs. If a loss occurs, the independent insurance agent or broker stands with the client until the claim is settled.

IIABA was founded in 1896 as the National Local Association of Fire Insurance Agents. With the expansion of property-casualty business and coverages, the organization’s name was changed to the National Association of Insurance Agents in 1913. To emphasize its members’ ability to work with a variety of insurance companies, the organization became the Independent Insurance Agents of America in 1975. The Association’s name was changed in 2002 to the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America to reflect the diversity of its membership, which includes both independent insurance agents and insurance brokers.

IIABA is a voluntary federation of state associations and local boards, with affiliates in every state and the District of Columbia. Its independent insurance agents and brokers are politically astute and are involved both locally and nationally. They monitor and affect consumer, insurance agent and broker, and small business issues in Washington through IIABA’s active, professional staff on Capitol Hill
