Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina, Inc. (IIANC) is a statewide trade association representing nearly 1000 independent insurance agencies in North Carolina, with more than 7,000 employees, who work to protect the insurance and financial needs of the state's citizens.


IIANC member independent insurance agents represent more than one insurance company, and as a result, can offer clients a wider choice of auto, home, business, life and health coverages. IIANC member agents not only advise clients about insurance, they recommend loss-prevention ideas, and if a loss occurs, the independent agent will work with the client until the claim is settled.


Founded in 1898, IIANC's mission is to be an advocate for independent insurance agents and to satisfy the business and professional needs of its members. In 1999, IIANC merged with Carolina Association of Professional Insurance Agents (CAPIA) bringing many valuable members to the association. IIANC joins 50 other state associations in membership in Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA). Our national association is recognized throughout the industry, and especially in Washington, DC, as a powerful organization that works to protect Big "I" members and their clients.


IIANC is here to help our members succeed in today’s competitive insurance industry. We know that running an independent agency, no matter how large or small, has its challenges. IIANC strives to make this easier by providing our members with the resources needed to manage their agencies and further their careers. Members have access to a wide variety of products, services and knowledge. Resources include networking opportunities, education, insurance products, agency management services, lobbying & advocacy, and much more.
