NAIC, NAMIC Convert Meetings to Virtual Only
Taking into consideration the health challenges related to large, in-person gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) is converting its Summer Meeting to a virtual format. The meeting was scheduled for Minneapolis and is the second of three large gatherings the NAIC hosts annually. Plans now call for the Summer Meeting to be spread over a three-week period, beginning the week of July 27.
Meanwhile, the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC) has made the decision to move all in-person events for remainder of 2020 to a virtual setting, including the Annual Convention in Boston scheduled for September, where a celebration of NAMIC’s 125th Anniversary had been planned. “The health and well-being of NAMIC members and staff are the most important factors in considering our options and hosting large event gatherings in these times is just not feasible,” said NAMIC in a statement.
