Many networks, vendors, or carriers may choose to join IIAT as an Associate Member for access to member lists, our Legislative Advocacy Team, to attend our signature events, be a Lead Underwriter (sponsor), or for other reasons. Some networks may be eligible to join as Agency Members if they are an agency group only. Primarily, IIAT has joined INA as a Network due to our focus on market access for our agent members via our MGA program which includes 27 programs and over 3000 member subcodes in those programs.
