IAOA has meant so much to my agency in our first year in business that words cannot describe. The selflessness, integrity, and tremendous knowledge it has brought me, I am indebted to for the rest of my career!

Dan Levine

Prime Time Insurance Agency

IAOA has been an integral and essential piece of my agency development. Building a captive agency for 17 years, then late 2013 starting from “scratch”. IAOA has been an incredible resource, not only from a human emotional support level, but also the resources on how to use various agency technology and marketing best practices.

Pat Knowd

Thousand Oaks Insurance Agency

What IAOA has done has bridged the gap between what now and get the heck out there for independent agents. It’s built relationships that are invaluable along with building a new platform for independent insurance agents. Not only are we better together but we are better because of each other.

Erin Nutting

Michelle Mosher Rebhahn

Southshore Insurance

It is an AWESOME group that has given me more ideas and direction, not to mention the occasional chance to laugh with others at some of the things our customers do regularly… Those times you think “is it just me??” Nope. Happens to others, too. Great to be reminded of that. Excellent!

Brian Noegel

Blue Ridge Insurance

IAOA allows for efficient collaboration and selfless sharing of information between like minded insurance advisors who place the integrity of our value proposition in the marketplace as a whole above short term gains. There exists the type of collaboration that can accomplish the unthinkable in short periods of time. I have no doubt that greater is coming for those agency owners on board!

Our experience with being a vendor at IAOA was extremely  positive. The attendees were very interested in the products offered by the vendors and spent a lot of time in the exhibit area. IAOA did everything they could to drive traffic into the exhibit area. One of the best conferences we have ever attended from that perspective.
