Best Practices 2017

Davidson & Associates Insurance of Vancouver has re-qualified to join an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group.


Based on operational excellence, only 262 independent agencies throughout the U.S. qualified for inclusion in the 2017 Best Practices Study. An IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company must first nominate the agency which then must annually submit extensive financial and operational data for review. Agencies qualify based on outstanding customer retention, growth, stability and financial management. More than 1,500 agencies were nominated for the status.  

The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual study of leading independent insurance agencies, which is conducted for IIABA by Reagan Consulting of Atlanta, Ga., documents the business practices of these high performance agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.

 Davidson & Associates Insurance has served local businesses, organizations and individuals since 1990. The firm is located at 610 Esther Street, Suite 101 in Vancouver. “We are extremely pleased to be designated again as a Best Practices Agency for the sixth consecutive year,” says Bruce Davidson, President and CEO of Davidson & Associates Insurance. “The IIABA sets very high standards for this award and we are honored to be chosen.”
