What is PIA?

The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) represents independent Professional Insurance Agents in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. Our members are local Main Street Agents who serve their communities throughout America.

PIA members realize the importance of an organization that advocates on their behalf and enables them to stay informed, educated and connected to other insurance professionals. They also benefit from the many
business-building tools that only an organization with the size and experience of PIA can offer. PIA supports them so they can be the professionals that today's and tomorrow's customers demand.

Serving Agents Since 1931

PIA was founded with objectives that are as relevant today as they were back in 1931:

Educate agency owners and staff about insurance concepts;
Keep agents informed about changing company offerings;
Allow agents to assist one another in proper underwriting of their business;
Increase cooperation between carriers and agents;
Encourage uniform policy writing and assist in proper form completion;
Advocate for agents in legislative matters;
Foster acquaintanceship among agents so they could support one another;
Protect the American Agency System

Who Are PIA's Members?

As independent Professional Insurance Agents, PIA's members generally represent not one, but multiple insurance companies. This enables them to provide their local customers, both individuals and small to mid-size businesses, with a choice of coverages to meet their unique insurance needs. PIA members are civic-minded, small businessmen and women who embody the spirit of entrepreneurial America and form the backbone of our society. They are leaders in their communities, providing personal attention to customers, one neighbor at a time.

PIA members, and PIA staff on their behalf, are active in the politics that govern their communities, states and nation. As local owners of small businesses, PIA members are concerned that laws and regulations serve not just the business community, but also their neighbors who depend upon the availability of good, affordable insurance to protect the things they hold dear.

This delicate balance is the reason PIA so ardently supports regulatory modernization of insurance in a manner that preserves state regulation. Done properly, this helps to streamline regulatory processes, thus reducing burdens on business, while ensuring that insurance oversight remains close to the people, so their concerns can be heard and they can be adequately protected. PIA also supports continued efforts to ensure the ongoing and financially sound availability of insurance coverage for acts of terrorism, natural catastrophes, floods and other events.
