Local Associations exist to fulfill the educational, political, and business needs of our members on a localized basis in the same way that IIABNY does on a state basis and IIABA does nationally.
Local associations provide the opportunity for neighbor agents to band together and:
  • Discuss industry issues on a localized basis
  • Meet with fellow agents & brokers, company leaders, legislators, and other industry leaders
  • Hold information/educational sessions
  • Conduct legislative activities
  • Sponsor conferences, promotional events, golf outings and other fund-raising activities

Get involved by contacting the leader of your local association or Kathy Lawler at IIABNY!
