Delaware Agents Groups to Merge

January 11, 2007

The Independent Agents Association of Delaware (IIAD) and the Insurance Agents & Brokers of Delaware (IA&B of DE) have agreed to merge their memberships.

“Our members have clearly told us that they want a single organization to represent their interests in Delaware and our two boards have agreed that we can better serve our members by merging,” said Jeff Good, President of IIAD.

Good said the new organization will maintain affiliations with both the Independent Agents Association of America (IIABA) and the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA National).

“We’re very excited about the new organization,” said Kevin Nemith, Chairman of IA&B of DE Board of Directors. “Our new voice will be stronger and clearer and our shared strength will create a better package of products and services for our membership.”

Nemith said both organizations are already at work bringing the two organizations together. Due diligence is underway as well as work on a final governance structure which will be presented to the memberships of both organizations for a vote in the next few months.

“Understand though,” Good said, “that this was not a vote to test the waters. Our two boards are fully committed to making this merger successful for the benefit of all independent insurance agents in Delaware.”
