Start An Agency

So you are thinking of starting an independent insurance agency? This is a major consideration and we at IIAV share your excitement and applaud your initiative. The information here is meant to provide many guidelines and points of interest as you begin planning.


The Virginia Association of Insurance Agents (VAIA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) education foundation created by the Independent Insurance Agents of Virginia (IIAV) in 2004. The goal of VAIA is to provide insurance education and training programs to facilitate awareness of insurance literacy and career opportunities within the industry.

Young Agents

To ensure the perpetuation of the independent agency system, the Young Agents Programs will provide agents with leadership training and networking opportunities giving them the skills they need to improve and enhance their agencies. Through such educational opportunities and association involvement, we will help to develop the next generation of association and industry leaders.
