The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) elected a slate of three new officers in interim elections held during the 2004 NAIC Fall National Meeting in Anchorage, Alaska. Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Diane Koken is the new NAIC president, Oregon Insurance Administrator Joel Ario the vice president, and Maine Insurance Superintendent Alessandro Iuppa will serve as secretary-treasurer. All three take office immediately. 

The interim elections were held to fill vacancies created by two recent resignations. Former NAIC President and South Carolina insurance director Ernst Csiszar resigned to become head of the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI), and Jim Poolman resigned his position as the NAIC's vice president to spend more time with his family and concentrate on his campaign for re-election as North Dakota Insurance Commissioner.

The new officers will serve for just three months. The NAIC says officer elections must be held again in November for full one-year terms. Koken said she would like to serve a full term as NAIC President next year as well.
