About IIABA

Who We Are, and What We Do

The IIABA-LA is the Los Angeles chapter of the IIABCal (Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of California), the state’s largest trade association, representing independent insurance agents and insurance brokers in California.

We are insurance professionals, we are small business owners, and above all, we are consumer advocates.

Benefits

Why Join IIABA-LA?

Direct and Immediate Benefits to YOU:

Educational events – Attend CE classes each year, including a Lunch & Learn in the spring and a 1-hour class before our Summer Spectacular in August.

Social events – these present opportunities to deepen existing relationships and form new ones and each other. Facetime is valuable, and our LA chapter facilitates both regular encounters and genuine friendships. Our social events typically include a creative or charitable event in February (past events have included wine tasting, scotch tasting, a clothing drive, a blood drive, a night out at a comedy club, and others), our Summer Spectacular Happy Hour on the rooftop at The Standard DTLA in August, and our Annual Meeting at The Magic Castle in Hollywood in December.

Annual I-Day Convention – each March, we partner with the San Fernando Valley and Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena chapters to plan and host a major insurance convention and tradeshow in the Greater Los Angeles area. This event typically includes both charitable and educational components as well as networking with 80+ exhibitors, a great speaker, lunch and a cocktail hour.

Strength in numbers

We’re able to come together to share market knowledge including data on mergers & acquisitions on the retail, wholesale AND carrier sides of the equation, combat disruptors, liaise with the state and national associations, and strategize when problems arise that threaten our firms and our industry and the fact that we communicate with one another is a huge differentiator between us and the direct writers. We’re better informed and more adaptable because we’re involved with this organization.

Advocacy Efforts

Every year, we send a delegation of independent insurance agents and brokers to Washington, D.C. to attend the National Legislative Conference and to personally meet with our representatives, senators and their legislative staff members. During these meetings, we express our views and appeals regarding federal insurance issues and upcoming legislation – items that have a direct and profound impact on our livelihood, our employees, and our customers.
