President Message

What a great honor to serve as the President of The Independent Insurance Agents of Houston!  I appreciate the opportunity to continue the work of those who have gone before me.  Hurricane Harvey’s impact will be far reaching - now is the time to band together for our common interests. 

IIAH is one of the oldest and largest local insurance associations in the country.  As the fourth largest metropolitan area, our agents and affiliates share a common bond.  We desire to improve our services, deliver top shelf products to our clients, make our customers’ voices heard, and share experience and expertise amongst ourselves and with our clients.

IIAH’s 11 committees range from 5 to 15 volunteers.  New for 2017-2018, the Membership Committee starts a round table event for our small agents and kicks off a membership drive.  Education updates our continuing education curriculum needs – like the eye-popping Dark Web!  Charitable supports flood relief, numerous charitable organizations and plans our Charity Bowl and Charity Benefit.  The Young Insurance Professionals (YIPs) hosts monthly Socials/FLASH.  Recreation plans our spring golf and fall sporting clay tournaments.  Houston Insurance Day (HID) coordinates the largest local annual convention and trade show.  Legislative communicates with our elected officials to promote the interests of our members and the consumer.  These are just the highlights planned for this year; you are encouraged to take advantage of IIAH’s many volunteer and leadership opportunities. 

The Executive Committee and Board of Directors welcome your suggestions for new programs and community involvement opportunities. We appreciate your time and service toward our association. Your involvement is crucial to our success. Please continue to be active in our committee efforts, attend our events and industry luncheons.  Always promote the association and recruit new members when you are out among other agents and affiliates.

IIAH needs you, the membership, to help us in this ongoing improvement process.  Thank you again for allowing me to serve, and I look forward to working with you.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, smargraves@tdecuinsurance.org, 979-235-1341.
