Founded in 1906 as the Oklahoma Association of Local Fire Insurance Agents, the Big I Oklahoma is the largest insurance trade association in the state. With nearly 450 independent insurance agency members, we represent over 3,000 independent insurance agents and their employees. Big I OK member agencies range in size from one person to some of the largest agencies in the region.
Big I OK policy is set by a board of directors elected at the annual convention. Policy is implemented by a professional staff located in Oklahoma City. Big I OK's mission, shown below, is carried out through a variety of programs designed to enhance the business of independent insurance agencies. Big I OK is an active advocate on behalf of independent agents before legislative, regulatory and judicial groups in Oklahoma and at the federal level. Big I OK is affiliated at the national level with the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America with offices in Alexandria, Virginia and Washington, DC.
Big I OK is an excellent source of information through POLICY magazine, published quarterly, and the Oklahoma Agent, a monthly newsletter of time-sensitive material for its members.
