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