The National Association of Insurance Commissioners*

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) is the organization of insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories. The NAIC provides a forum for the development of uniform insurance regulatory policy, when uniformity is appropriate.

State insurance regulators created the NAIC in 1871 to address the need to coordinate regulation of multi-state insurers. Since then, new legislative concepts, new levels of expertise in data collection and delivery, and a commitment to even greater technological capability have moved the NAIC forward into its role as a multidimensional, regulatory support organization.

The mission of the NAIC is to assist state insurance regulators, individually and collectively, in serving the public interest and achieving insurance regulatory goals in a responsive, efficient and cost effective manner, consistent with the wishes of its members.

Florida and the NAIC

Florida has exercised leadership within the NAIC by serving as members, Chair or Vice Chair of significant standing committees and continues to be actively involved in several key committees of the NAIC. Commissioner McCarty was elected by his peers to serve as NAIC’s secretary-treasurer in 2008, vice-president in 2009 and president-elect in 2010 (serving in that role through December 2011). Commissioner McCarty became NAIC’s president in 2012 and, during that time, achieved the organization’s key initiatives, which included approving changes to the Actuarial Guideline 38 (AG 38) and adoption of the Valuation Manual for Implementing Principle-Based Reserving. He continues to serve as a past president and be an active participant in the NAIC.
