The exact date that an Atlanta association of independent insurance agents was formed is unknown; however, by 1917, the Atlanta Insurance Exchange was formed and met regularly to promote growth and regulate Atlanta agencies. They had a budget, collected dues and fines, and had officers. They met at the Piedmont Hotel and had 18 agencies as members. From this strong organization grew the association known today as the Metro Alliance of Independent Insurance Agents.
In 1919, The Exchange, as we were then known, joined the International Fire Prevention Society and the member companies joined the state association that was formed in 1898. It has been reported that both the state and the Atlanta association were organized at the same time.
In 1922, the Atlanta Insurance Exchange changed names to the Atlanta Board of Fire Underwriters and then in 1929 it changed names again to the Atlanta Association of Fire Insurance Agents growing larger all along. In 1937, the name was changed again to the Atlanta Association of Independent Insurance Agents. In 2002, the Atlanta Association of Independent Insurance agents joined with the DeKalb Association of Independent Insurance Agents to become the Metro Alliance of Independent Insurance Agents.
