COLUMBUS – Columbus will be at the center of the insurance universe in August 2021. Ohio Department of Insurance Director Jillian Froment announced that Ohio’s capital city has been selected by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) as the location for the organization’s summer national meeting.
“We are honored to have the premier insurance regulatory organization choose our state and city for its conference,” Froment said. “This selection is added confirmation of Columbus’ national and international recognition as a hub of the insurance industry, and also serves as a nod to Ohio’s leadership role as an industry regulator.”
More than 2,000 insurance regulators, company representatives, consumer advocate groups and media members will converge over four-days to discuss critical insurance issues impacting the country. The NAIC last visited Columbus in 1902.
Since that last meeting here, Ohio has grown to the sixth largest U.S. insurance market and the 17th largest in the world.
The NAIC is the U.S. standard-setting and regulatory support organization created and governed by the chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories.
Dallas and San Francisco were also selected as host cities in 2021.
