MIAI Associate Membership is available to those companies who support the Iowa mutual insurance industry and insurance companies who support the Iowa farm mutual insurance industry but who are not domiciled in Iowa.
We have 79 farm mutual insurance companies as MIAI members in Iowa, all operating over 100 years. Like farming, mutual insurance has been a part of the Iowa scene for well over a century.
Dating back to the 1800s when “insurance” meant neighbors agreeing to replace another’s house or barn that burned, most member companies are primarily in rural and small-town areas. Many, including the larger multi-line mutuals, now insure people in town. Just as farm methods have progressed, so too have the ways of the mutual insurer.
The clout of MIAI companies is reflected by the numbers. At year-end 2019, MIAI farm mutual members had over 180,000 policyholders insuring $64,433,500,000 in property value and had policyholder surplus totaling $583,624,000.
By becoming an Associate Member, you will have access to the Members-Only section of the MIAI website which includes the membership list with full contact information. In addition, we have an online map showing where each mutual is located to help you as you plan your visits to meet these amazing people.
2020-2021 Membership dues are $720.00. In addition to the membership list and map, you are provided a complimentary booth at our annual convention (a $500 value). Further, you will be invited to all educational events where you can network with the membership.
