Connecticut Commissioner Mais elected as NAIC president
Connecticut Insurance Department Commissioner Andrew Mais has been elected to serve as president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).
The NAIC is composed of the 56 chief insurance regulators in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five territories of the US. Mais will assume his additional duties with the NAIC beginning January 1, 2024.
“Being selected by my colleagues at the NAIC is something I am very proud of. The NAIC is a broad, inclusive organization working to serve the public’s interest through collaborative efforts that consistently leads to a gold standard of excellence in insurance matters,” Commissioner Mais said. “This new role as President is good for the state and for Connecticut consumers and would not have been possible without the support of the excellent staff at the Department.”
In 2024, Mais will Chair the NAIC’s Government Relations and Leadership Council and the Executive Committee among others. Mais is also Co-Chair of the NAIC’s Special Executive Committee on Race and Insurance, charged with conducting research, analyzing issues of diversity and inclusion within the insurance sector, and suggesting solutions.
Mais currently serves on the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) Macroprudential and Executive Committees and its Insurance Capital Standards Task Force. The IAIS is the international standard-setting body responsible for developing and assisting in the supervision of the insurance sector.
