To Serve and To Share

CAIFPA, California Asian Insurance and Financial Professional Association, formerly CAIPA, was formed January 2, 1986 by a group of Chinese American insurance and financial services professionals. The corporation has established its tax-exempt status under the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(C)(6).

Our industry had undergone many changes in the past decades since this organization was born. To recognize these changes, the board of directors had numerous discussions and considerations during the 2004 board meetings; the new name was finalized in August. Our members approved this new name during the members general meeting / election held September 30, 2004. Our changed name was also approved by the State of California.

This is a non-profit organization. Our biggest vision is to unite the insurance and financial industry professionals, and to provide a forum to share our ideas and experiences. We have provided a wide range of seminars and courses for our members in different topics with top-notch speakers from this industry.

Further, CAIFPA is a MDRT approved qualified professional organization, i.e., any of our members would qualify for a MDRT membership when their production reaches to the MDRT standard.

At the same time, one of CAIFPA's commitments is to give back to our community. In the past, we have donated to a number of charities and provided scholarships to college students who are majoring in this field.
