Meet Mountain Empire Agency Alliance

Independent doesn’t have to mean alone. It is a great thing to say, but what does it mean and how does it describe Mountain Empire Agency Alliance?

An independent agency on its own is often smaller than the national brands’ captive agencies they compete with. With a smaller staff and fewer resources, any advantage is crucial. Independent agencies can always use access to more carriers, professional consultations and training, simple profit sharing, and more– everything helps. That is where a network like SIAA comes into play. 

How is MEAA connected to SIAA?
