NAIC Cancels Summer National Meeting due to Hurricane Irene
|August 30, 2011|
The National Association of Insurance Commissioners decided to cancel its Summer National Meeting, which was scheduled for Aug. 29-Sept. 1 in Philadelphia due to Hurricane Irene. More than 1,500 insurance regulators, industry representatives and interested parties had registered to attend the conference.
“In evaluating the potential threat of Hurricane Irene, our decision to cancel the meeting was informed by considering the safety of all attendees and members,” said Susan E. Voss, NAIC president and Iowa Insurance Commissioner. “The first priority for all state regulators is responding to disasters and we are fully committed to assisting the states affected by this disaster.”
ALTA had prepared to work with regulators during the meeting on efforts to promote better information for consumers to use when shopping for title insurance. To provide information on this topic, contact ALTA's VP of Government and Regulatory Affairs Justin Ailes.
The NAIC Fall National Meeting is scheduled for Nov. 3-6 in Washington, D.C.
