 A Message From HIIA President

Ron McQuaid

Aloha, and welcome to the Hawaii Independent Insurance Agents Association, an organization devoted to promoting the independent agent in assisting the public with finding the best values for all their insurance needs. Our goal is to be a valued resource - to the public, by finding the best product at the best prices - and to the agent, by committing to be its advocate at the legislature and other governmental agencies so they can continue to serve and protect his clients. We see ourselves as consumer advocates, standing alongside our customers when they have a claim until settlement.
