Champions for Independent Agents.

Ohio Insurance Agents (OIA) is the premier trade association for independent agents in the state. We help our members protect consumers and employers by offering access to the best resources, tools and professional development programs available. OIA serves our members in four key areas: advocacy, professional development, business solutions and industry thought leadership.

Our Mission

We promote, progress and protect the professional advice and guidance only independent insurance agents provide. We believe the right insurance matters, and independent agents are best capable of providing peace of mind and protection.

Who We Represent

OIA is the voice of 1,300 independent insurance agencies and their clients. We represent agencies of every size, from small, family-owned businesses to large agencies with multiple locations. Collectively, these agencies employ more than 10,000 Ohioans. OIA members write 82 percent of the commercial insurance policies and 44 percent of personal insurance policies in Ohio.
