About Our Association
The East Bay Independent Insurance Agents Association (EBIIAA) was originally under the Independent Insurance Agents Association of Contra Costa County (IIAACC) and was founded in 1921 and incorporated on May 17, 1978.
EBIIAA/IIAACC is a long-time respected organization that serves the interest of local Independent Insurance Agents, Brokers, Companies and Affiliates.
The EBIIAA DBA name was added in 2011 after the Oakland, Southern Alameda Associations dissolved to be more inclusive and encourage those members to be a part of EBIIAA.
EBIIAA dues are billed annually. The annual dues are $225.
The EBIIAA fiscal year is 10-1 to 9-30 and the dues are billed on a calendar year 1-1 to 12-31 each year.
EBIIAA does not require members to also be a member of IIABCal, the State Association.
EBIIAA and IIABCal are supportive of each other in their efforts to enhance and promote the Independent Agent/Broker, Companies and Affiliates experience.

Bonnie Ottino Scholarship Award
Bonnie Ottiono worked for IIABC, the precursor of IBA West, for 30+ years, serving as Executive Director until her retirement in 1984. She then filled that same position for the IIAACCC until 1994. During her long and varied insurance career,
Bonnie was a staunch advocate of professional women in the insurance industry. She led by example, providing a model of hard work and the highest standards of professionalism. Bonnie passed away in 1995.
The Independent Insurance Agents Association of Contra Costa County (IIAACCC) established this scholarship award in an effort to perpetuate her memory. The Bonnie Ottino Education Memorial Award was established with several objectives in mind:
1) To assist insurance professionals in reaching a higher level of performance through professional education.
2) To assist agencies with the sometimes unaffordable professional development costs and thereby contributing to their ability to provide continuing education to employees.
3) To enhance the knowledge of agency employees so that they, in turn, will contribute to their association and the insurance profession as a whole.
Recipient of the award is given up to $500 reimbursement for successful completion of the course.
