The National Association of Insurance Commissioners has decided to cancel its Summer National Meeting, which was scheduled for August 29-September 1 in Philadelphia. 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."

PIA believes it was prudent for the NAIC to cancel their summer meeting because several states and U.S. territories were affected by Hurricane Irene and they will need their insurance departments fully focused on the aftermath.
