Participation in IIABW
Insurance companies, technology vendors and others who do business with independent agents and brokers can increase their visibility by becoming an associate membership of IIABW, being a sponsor or exhibitor at our Business Expo/Conference, or advertising in our quarterly magazine, Big I Washington.
The Big I meets with carriers at both the state and national level to discuss agent-company relations and reinforce the value that agents bring to the insurance transaction. Recommendations are made to companies regarding changes that will foster more positive agent-company relations and more productive transactions.
The Big I publishes legal briefs on current regulatory issues (broker disclosure, certificates of insurance, fair credit reporting act, HIPAA, etc.)
The Big I counsels insurance companies on how to write contracts that are agent-friendly in areas such as indemnification, ownership of expirations and termination. The Big I has hundreds of agency contracts reviews by clicking here.
