Three days after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) announced that its September 10-13 Fall meetings there were being cancelled. Approximately 1,500 insurance regulators, industry representatives and interested parties had registered to attend the conference. "The first priority for all insurance commissioners is responding to disasters," said NAIC President Diane Koken. "Our hearts go out to our colleagues who are trying to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The NAIC and our members pledge our unified support in helping insurance consumers restore their lives after this unparalleled catastrophe." The NAIC has also made a pledge of $25,000 to the American Red Cross Special Hurricane Fund to assist with recovery efforts from Hurricane Katrina.
