About Us

The East Bay Independent Insurance Agents Association (EBIIAA) is the DBA name under the Independent Insurance Agents Association of Contra Costa County (IIAACCC).  The  Association was founded in 1921 and incorporated on May 17, 1978.
EBIIAA/IIAACCC is a long-time respected organization that serves the interest of local Independent Insurance Agents, Brokers, Companies and Affiliates.
The EBIIAA dba name was added in 2011 after the Oakland, Southern Alameda Associations dissolved to be more inclusive and encourage those members to be a part of EBIIAA.
