The Council of Insurance Agents

Since 1913, The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers has provided industry leadership while representing the largest, most productive and most profitable commercial insurance agencies in the U.S. and around the globe. Council members in over 3,000 locations, place nearly 80%—well over $100 billion—of the U.S. commercial property/casualty premiums.

Based in Washington DC, The Council provides its members with a variety of services, including annual conferences, executive training, licensing services, lobbying efforts, networking opportunities and publications and studies.

In January 1996, The Council unveiled its premium financing package, Council PreFi. Offered to Council members through FIRST Insurance Funding, Council PreFi is a unique and comprehensive plan that combines competitive rates, superior service, cutting-edge technology and innovative features to ensure members’ clients are satisfied and members' businesses are protected. The program is designed by brokers for brokers and is an exclusive service for Council members.

FIRST has been the exclusive premium finance partner for The Council for more than 20 years.
