Independent Insurance Agents &
IIABKC is the King County chapter of IIABW (Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of Washington), the state's largest trade association, representing independent insurance agents and insurance brokers in Washington.
Our mission is to promote education, and intimate, organic networking events in our local community that foster fellowship and professionalism in the insurance industry.
Increased representation. IIABKC members benefit from three-tier representation – representation within King County, representation on a state-wide level (through IIABW), and representation on a national level (through IIABA).
Educational opportunities. The IIABKC’s continuing education programs and Annual Meetings offer members unparalleled education offerings that are tailored to the specific needs of King County agents.
Networking. Every contact you make is a potential asset to you and your business. The IIABKC Annual Meeting, educational offerings, golf tournament and social events are excellent tools for professional interaction. And, the IIABKC Board makes a concerted effort to co-host events with other industry associations (e.g. PLUS, CPCU), to further increase the networking potential for you.
Investing in our Industry. The IIABKC makes two key investments in the future of the local insurance industry: 1.) we sponsor an insurance internship to a college student, and 2.) we provide Professional Development Grants, up to $500 each, that can be applied to the continuing education efforts of any employee of an IIABKC member for any educational event including the IIABW and Young Agents Conventions, CIC, IIABW-sponsored CE. The professional development grants alone can pay for your membership.
Public Relations enhancement. The IIABKC works hard to educate the public on the role of the independent insurance agent and provide press coverage for activities of the organization.
Responsibility. As a member of the insurance industry, you have a responsibility to be part of its workings. The successful professional is one who shares that responsibility and who participates in his or her industry organization. We need and want you to be part of our team.
IIABKC Member of the Month
The Johnson Marshall Agency
Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Johnson has called California, Texas and France home at different times of his life. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1988 and The Sorbonne, Paris in 1989. He has lived in Bellevue, WA for the last twenty years.
Johnson began his career in the insurance agency in 1999 after moving to the the Seattle area from Edmonton, Alberta. As he likes to say, you'll still hear him pronouncing words like "house", "about" and "process" properly, despite having spent more years in the US than not!
Johnson is an avid golfer but takes his greatest joys from being a dad where he still gets to watch his daughter's dance recitals, his son's basketball tournaments and his grand-kids energetic play.
He's proud of the agency and team he has built and the friendships he has built along the way. "We enjoy a good life while providing an essential service to people, especially in their greatest moments of need."
