[In light of Hurricane Katrina] Officials of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) are discussing what to do about their Fall meetings, which are scheduled for September 10-13 at the Sheraton New Orleans on Canal Street. NAIC spokesman Scott Holeman told A.M. Best on Monday while principals still are waiting to determine the storm's impact on the city calls for other locations already are under way.

NAIC President and Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Diane Koken said one option being discussed is to cancel the meeting and, in lieu of the usual gathering, advance some of the hottest topics currently on the table via conference call. "Obviously, we are at the point now of exploring our options," Koken said. "And one of those options is that we don't have an in-person meeting. What is critical is that the work of the NAIC continues, particularly in the face of this type of natural disaster." Koken said a decision will be made this week.
