Members of the AAMGA and NAPSLO, with an overwhelmingly affirmative vote, approved a merger to create the Wholesale & Specialty Insurance Association (WSIA), effective August 1, 2017. WSIA is a new, world-class member services organization that will serve the entirety of the wholesale, specialty and surplus lines industry.

WSIA has been developed, through the thoughtful and diligent work of the Merger Committee, as the only association of insurance professionals dedicated specifically to the wholesale, specialty and surplus lines insurance industry. WSIA is dedicated to developing and strengthening the industry and will provide you with unparalleled service in five key areas:

  • Networking
  • Education
  • Talent recruitment and development initiatives
  • Regulatory and legislative advocacy
  • Promotion of wholesale value

In the coming months, the programming and brand strengths of both legacy organizations will evolve into WSIA. One of the first places you will see this change is September 10-13, 2017 at the NAPSLO Annual Convention, which will become the WSIA Annual Marketplace.  Members can register for Annual Marketplace online here.

A new WSIA website is under development, and will launch in October. In the meantime, you can find information about upcoming WSIA events here . Please feel free to contact any member of the WSIA Board  or staff  to answer questions or provide any information you may need.

 Welcome to WSIA!
