About Us


In 1942, the Insurance Women of Buffalo was founded by 90 charter women who found the Insurance Industry to be a challenging, exciting career.


IWOB is a local chapter of Federation of New York Insurance Professionals (FNYIP). IWOB hosts a monthly dinner meeting featuring a speaker on subjects pertinent to the industry.


Our organization consists of insurance professionals as well as individuals in related fields, such as, attorneys and restoration experts. These are individuals of all ages. Those new to the industry and those to share their knowledge.
