The NAIC works closely with consumer representatives to assist state regulators in their primary objective of protecting insurance consumers. Listed below are three ways consumers or consumer organizations can participate directly in NAIC national meetings and other deliberations. Individuals who are selected from the applications will be notified in early 2021.
*The NAIC defines a consumer organization as a national, state, or local organization that serves to protect the interests of consumers as they relate to the regulation of insurance. Their participation at NAIC meetings should represent a consumer perspective and should be based on their desire to collect and/or impart information of mutual concern and interest to insurance consumers and regulators. One measure of whether an organization represents a consumer perspective is its source of funding. By definition, an organization that receives significant funding from the insurance industry is not a consumer organization.
