Our History

For years, most people didn’t really understand risk and insurance – or the policies themselves. Yet, way back in 1969, a small group of Texas independent agents knew the truth: With a structured curriculum and practical, real-life education that went beyond theory, they could ignite an entire industry of skilled professionals.

Together with University of Texas educators, these pioneering agents formed the industry’s first nonprofit training and CE credit resource. The National Alliance was born.

Along the way, we’ve built a genuine community of professionals who succeed and thrive. For decades, we’ve impacted millions of professionals with our practical education. Like us, they’re dedicated to lifelong learning and collaboration. Our participants understand their career potential and gain a real workplace advantage.

Today, our education and networks continue to evolve and expand. We are trusted to lead the risk management and insurance industry through change.

The National Alliance ensures no one has to go it alone. We’ve made success a group activity.
