IMCA is the oldest insurance marketing trade association in North
America, founded in 1923 as the Insurance Advertising Conference (IAC).
In 1984, we changed our name to the Insurance Marketing Communications
Association to better reflect the evolving roles of insurance
communicators. The name was amended in 2005 to the Insurance Marketing
& Communications Association to better differentiate members’ broad
expertise in marketing, public relations, corporate communications and
emerging digital communication practices.
