The Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA), the nation's oldest and largest independent agent association, is both a highly regarded consumer advocacy organization and a powerful force within the insurance industry, on Capitol Hill and in the media. Founded in 1896 by a small group of local fire agents, the association now represents 300,000 agents and their employees.
Now in its second century, IIABA' s activities have expanded to address the many challenges and opportunities that agents face. Through its federation of 51 state associations, as well as its headquarters and Capital Hill offices, IIABA provides advocacy, business tools and media visibility to its members. IIABA represents more than half of all the independent insurance agencies in the country, and its members range from small rural agencies selling personal lines to large commercial brokers handling major national accounts.
