OIA is your trusted state association, advocate and advisor. We have been your agency’s champion since 1897 and we only serve your agency and Ohio independent insurance agencies.
At OIA, our focus is you! We know your agency. We know your community. We know your clients. We are local and invested in the economy of Ohio.
How? Because we are led by a group of independent agents that work alongside of you in Ohio. Our volunteer agent leaders live and work in Girard, Versailles, Lima, Sunbury, Port Clinton, Worthington and Bellefontaine, Cincinnati, Toledo and Beavercreek to name a few.
Your OIA team was born, raised and educated in local Ohio communities. Your OIA team hails from all over our great state – Canton, Hillboro, Sandusky, Cuyahoga Falls, Mount Vernon, Pataskala, Bowling Green, Shaker Heights, Beavercreek, Sunbury, Mentor, Medina, Youngstown and Reynoldsburg to name a few.
We all live, work and raise our families in Ohio. We all have relationships with independent insurance agents in our local communities for our insurance needs. We support local because it matters.
We know the pulse of our state and the communities. We know as an independent insurance agent you value local services and we promise you we do as well.
You could use a broker from California or New York to get your E&O but…do they really know your agency? How hard would they fight for you when you have a claim? Are you just another nameless, faceless client from somewhere in Ohio in their PIF count? Do they care about your employees? Do they help educate you and your staff? Do they advocate for you and your agency? Not likely, but we do because it matters.
We know Ohio businesses. We know Ohio judges and the court system. We know the most favorable and least favorable judicial venues. We know the laws, rules and regulations to fighting E&O claims. We know the best local E&O defense attorneys and on the flip side the most aggressive trial lawyers. We know the expert witnesses. We know the carriers. It matters.
Like you are to your clients, we are your local, trusted risk advisor on E&O, cyber and other agency coverage needs. Thank you for trusting us, we greatly value our relationship and look forward to serving you for many years to come.
