M3 Retains IIABA Best Practices Agency Status in 2018
M3 Insurance has been named a 2018 Best Practices Agency by Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) marking the 20th consecutive year M3 has retained this honor. Over 1500 independent agencies throughout the country were nominated to take part in the study, but only 262 insurance agencies qualified.
Requirements for being named a Best Practices Agency include nomination by either an IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company, and qualification based on outstanding customer retention, growth, stability, and financial management. Nominated agencies have to be among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories to be chosen. Learn more about What Makes a Best Practices Agency.
The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as a foundation for their efforts in improving agency performance. Each year since, IIABA has joined forces with Reagan Consulting, Inc., Atlanta, to conduct the study with the purpose of documenting the business practices of “best” agencies and urging others to adopt similar practices. The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year. The selected Best Practices agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year. This is the third year of the current three-year study cycle.
Founded in 1896, IIABA is the nation’s oldest and largest national association of independent insurance agents and brokers, representing a network of more than 300,000 agents, brokers and their employees nationally. Its members are businesses that offer customers a choice of policies from a variety of insurance companies. Independent agents and brokers offer all lines of insurance – property, casualty, life and health – as well as employee benefit plans and retirement products. Web address: www.independentagent.com.
