NAIC Releases 2017 Annual Report – A Blueprint for Strategy

"2017 was a strong year for the NAIC, not only from an operational standpoint, but also from a regulatory standpoint," said Ted Nickel, the NAIC's Most Recent Past President and Wisconsin Insurance Commissioner.

The annual report provides a review of regulatory activities in the following areas: operations and technology, financial regulation, consumer education, market regulation and health, federal and international policy.

"In 2017 state insurance regulators were heard in Washington D.C. and in international forums as credible, non-partisan resources on tough issues like health insurance reform, international agreements and disaster response," said Julie Mix McPeak, NAIC President and Tennessee Commissioner of Commerce and Insurance. "While the future of these issues is still being determined, increased state flexibility and authority are a direct result of our approach."

The report also outlines the NAIC's three year strategic plan, State Ahead. "We began discussions on State Ahead in 2017 and it's the roadmap that will provide the organization the guidance it needs to navigate through the next three years," said Nickel.

The report includes the organization's audited financial statements and features a video in which Nickel, McPeak, NAIC CEO Michael F. Consedine and COO/CLO Andy Beal recap the year.
