Agency Development (SOAR)

Connect with a personal SOAR guide to identify a path to start or grow your insurance agency.

SOAR is a free Big “I” member service in which a dedicated association professional connects with your agency to help you navigate essential member resources. 

Through brief conversations designed to hone in on how we can best meet your agency needs with existing Big “I” membership programs, a SOAR guide will help your agency develop a personalized plan for maximizing the benefits of your Big “I” membership investment. 

SOAR then plugs your agency in to specific resources designed to protect, enhance, or grow your business. SOAR focuses on six key areas a startup/emerging agency needs: agency E&O, tech resources, market access, marketing, staffing/education, and operations/agency management.
