The MEAA Advantage
The MEAA Advantage
Why you should choose Mountain Empire Agency Alliance (MEAA)
Mountain Empire Agency Alliance (MEAA) is a regional partner of Strategic Independent Agents Alliance (SIAA), the largest independent insurance agency network in the United States, serving Tennessee, Western North Carolina, and Central to Northern Virginia territories.
SIAA is a national insurance agency alliance of completely independent insurance agencies. The collective strength of these alliances allows local agents to remain independent and increase profits by obtaining more carrier appointments, earning higher commissions and accessing valuable business resources.
As the insurance industry evolves, local insurance agencies are finding it increasingly difficult to arrange carrier appointments, start new agencies and receive profit sharing revenues. As a member of MEAA, local agencies bypass these hurdles. Regardless of their size, agencies also have access to more than 20 top-rated carriers and are given the opportunity to earn individual company appointments. Additional benefits include ongoing support and mentorship, allowing agencies to further increase their income opportunities through professional training and development.
MEAA member agencies are individually owned and operated. Our goal is to help these agencies develop and grow. The success of MEAA depends on the success of the individual agencies who make up the membership. MEAA conducts a thorough evaluation of each company, its personnel and its operations before extending an offer to become a strategic partner with MEAA and, by affiliation, other independent agencies in the region.
