The Missouri Association of Insurance Agents is the oldest and largest association of insurance agents in the state of Missouri. The association was established in 1899 in St. Louis. Approximately 500 independent agencies, operated by 4,000 agents, brokers and their employees, are members of MAIA. "Independent" insurance agents and brokers offer their clients the products of more than one insurance company.
The association's goal is to educate and inform the state's professional independent insurance agents, promote high standards of conduct among its members, and represent the interests of its members and their clients in legislative, regulatory and judicial arenas.
