hat does IA&B mean to you? We’ve asked that question of you and your fellow members quite a bit, and we’ve drawn upon your answers to refocus on your needs and improve on your benefits. You’ve known us as a reliable resource for advocacy, training, compliance, insurance products, news and more. And now, thanks to our elevated member-centric philosophy, we think you’ll find membership of greater value than ever before.

How to use My Homepage

On the following pages, we’ll share what’s new at and with its My Homepage account-management feature — and how you’ll benefit. Reset your Internet favorites list and bookmark a new website. We’re aiming to make your first stop for answers to your burning questions on agency management and legal and regulatory compliance; your go-to source for the latest industry news; and your one-stop shop for professional training and development and insurance products. The site debuted on Aug. 29. With it came the introduction of several features developed in response to your input and poised to improve your agency’s operations. Read on for a description of a few and how you’ll benefit from them. Site search and navigation Thanks to an improved search feature and streamlined navigation, you’ll save time finding answers and, in turn, gain even more benefit from your membership by further utilizing our resources.

The new features My Homepage – your personal hub for maintaining your individual and your agency’s contact information, preferences and demographics, as well as for registering yourself and your colleagues for education and events. My Homepage also provides a portal to search by region, date and topic for the training opportunities that meet your needs.

We heard you loud and clear: Our resources are thorough, helpful — and numerous — but finding them online was the pits. Our new site search engine lets you “self-service” our resources and find answers quickly. And how resources are organized on the new site allows for easier, more intuitive navigation. Plus, we’ve incorporated an Ask the Experts section, stocked with answers to members’ frequently asked questions.
