IIABSC membership dues are based on the total number of employees at all agency locations (main location + all branch locations).

“Employee” includes all officers, owners, partners, producers, and other licensed or unlicensed employees and independent contractors who further the work of the agency or brokerage firm, wherever located, whether involved with insurance, employee benefits, or other financial services of the agency (Leased employees should be counted as employees).

Full-time employees (working 30+ hours per week) should be counted as “1” and part-time employees (less than 30 hours per week) should be counted as “.5”. The final total should be rounded up, if necessary (an agency with 10.5 total employees would pay dues for 11 employees).
