Carriers are more willing to appoint your agency if you’re partnered with an Alliance like VIAA. Carriers know our community of Members have a strong support system and understand the new business potential of each member.

"I can get any carrier I want now
because of VIAA"

Before I joined VIAA, I was wandering without direction.  I didn’t know the resources that were out there to help independent agents, I didn’t know any carrier reps, I didn’t even know there was a state association for people like me.  Once I joined VIAA, they helped me get to know so many people and companies that have helped my agency grow.  I went from being unknown by most, to a person who is sought out by carriers, associations, and my peers.

Who is VIAA?

The Powers family, founders of VIAA (Valley Insurance Agency Alliance), sat together in 2006 to discuss what value they could bring to an independent insurance agency. They identified pain points they had experienced themselves and formed VIAA to help other small businesses overcome those challenges.

Like most networks, we started with the focus of providing access to markets and increasing revenue. At VIAA, that is just the beginning of what we have to offer.
