Hello and thank you for your interest in the North Carolina Association of Insurance Professionals (NCAIP).  Our membership includes men and women professionals in all facets of our Insurance industry.  We hope you will contact the president of the association in your area or our national headquarters at International Association of Insurance Professionals (IAIP).

Norell Smith, President and Council Director

In 1938, a small group of insurance women in Denver formed an  organization for Insurance education purposes.

Two of the toughest challenges facing those women in those first years were soliciting members and convincing employers that the association's purpose was truly educational not a cover for union activities. The result of this organization was the formation of the National Association of Insurance Women (NAIW), now known as the International Association of Insurance Professionals (IAIP).

The North Carolina Association of Insurance Professionals is the state council of IAIP comprised of Agents, Agencies, Companies and Insurance Affiliated Organizations throughout North Carolina.
