About Us

imagesEstablished in 1990, The Chinese American Insurance Association (CAIA) is the first organization of its kind in the New York metropolitan area founded by insurance industry executives of Chinese heritage.

The association, led by a group of experienced professionals with diverse insurance background, is comprised of 700 plus membership from many well-established insurance agencies, brokerages and individuals domiciled primarily in the State of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

For its members, the association provides information, resources and CE classes to enable them to excel in their own professionalism. The association’s networking events create a forum for members to exchange market perspectives and to promote mutual understanding among agents, brokers and insurance companies.

The association has reached out to the Chinese American consumer market with bilingual brochures printed in both Chinese and English languages in an effort to familiarize the general public in how to buy insurance to protect their families and businesses, and to assist them in understanding the complexities of insurance coverages.
