who we are

The Southern Agents Conference was founded in 1971, to provide a communication forum for Independent  In​surance Agents throughout the Southeast. Membership includes agencies that are members of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA) in Alabama, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia. 

SAC is primarily a sounding board for agents to relay common concerns to national industry organizations (IIABA, ISO, NCCI, etc.), as they solve common problems through small-group interaction. Members convene annually in Atlanta for the SAC Workshop, which attracts 250 agents, colleagues and family. IIABA Officers and staff address the group, which then break out into small focus and discussion groups: State Officers, National Directors, State Execs, Young Agents, Association Products & Services, Commercial Lines, Education, Legislative Affairs, Personal Lines, and Technology. 

Company, Broker and Vendor colleagues participate—both sponsors and as active contributors to the many lively discussions which are the heart of the Workshop--working together to advance the independent agency system throughout the Southeast.
