A model insurance agency alliance designed by agents for agents
Renaissance Alliance is a model insurance agency membership organization in a league of its own.

At the core of its success are the finest and most profitable independent agencies who qualify for membership on many levels. Forward-thinking and united in their passion for personal and professional growth, they recognize increased access to markets and higher profit share alone are no longer sufficient for their businesses to thrive and remain relevant.
