Who We Are

For over five decades, The National Alliance has set the standard for quality, practical continuing education and for delivering what insurance and risk management practitioners want. Over 150,000 respected professionals, across the U.S. and worldwide, have used and continue to use our programs as the foundation upon which they build their successful careers and businesses.

The educational programs and research conducted by The National Alliance were built on a foundation of integrity, innovation, and imagination. These qualities commit us to act responsibly, to be accountable for our actions, to fulfill our obligations, and to inspire others with our relentless determination to achieve a standard of excellence in every endeavor.

The National Alliance began with a request from a small group of independent agents in Texas who were seeking a first-of-its-kind educational program for insurance practitioners. It has grown to become the nation’s leading professional insurance and risk management education resource. From the inception of the very first CIC institute, conducted in 1969 in Austin, Texas, we have had two very simple goals:

  • To provide excellent programs of practical value to the best insurance and risk management practitioners, and
  • To continually work to bring greater recognition and value to their achievements.

Vision and Values

The National Alliance will be the indispensable, transformative learning resource for risk and insurance professionals through adaptive technology and practical instruction.
