The Professional Insurance Agents Associations of New York State, New Jersey, Connecticut and New Hampshire evolved over more than 65 years. Beginning in the 1940s as the Mutual Agents Association, the organizations were known as the Independent Mutual Insurance Agents in the 1960s and 70s. In 1977, the Professional Insurance Agents identity was established at a national level and adopted by our respective states, in response to the expanding markets accessed by member agencies. Professional Insurance Agents of New York State, New Jersey and Connecticut have been business partners in a highly successful joint management agreement for nearly 50 years. Through this arrangement and the support of PIA Management Services Inc., wholly owned by the three state associations, members in each state benefit from the expertise and resources of a staff of nearly 90 industry professionals. PIA of New Hampshire members have enjoyed the benefits of the association’s participation in this group since 1999.
