To provide our membership with the tools to improve their knowledge of the General Insurance Business and to keep up to date on the ongoing changes and concerns of the insurance industry.
To emphasize the benefits to be derived from fostering friendship and networking among the professionals in the insurance business.
To instill high ethical standards in business relations and loyalty towards one another in our social relations.
When it all began
The association was created by a group of women in Edmonton in 1981
We were originally known as the Insurance Women of Edmonton. The association was formed to help women in the insurance industry network with other women and increase their business and insurance knowledge through monthly meetings with guest speakers and seminars.
This was the first business opportunity for many women in Edmonton to meet and network. Membership in the association was and continues to be supported by many of the industry companies.
Open to all
In 1989 the Association changed its name to the Edmonton Insurance Association. This change opened up membership to all individuals in the insurance industry along with all our industry partners.
