Given the ongoing health challenges associated with holding large in-person meetings in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners is converting its Summer Meeting to a virtual format.
A revised Summer National Meeting schedule with specific dates and times will be available on naic.org no later than July 6, the association said today. Registration for the Summer National Meeting will open June 23.
The meeting was scheduled for Minneapolis, and is the second of three large gatherings the NAIC hosts annually. The Spring Meeting was also converted to online-only in March.
The reduced registration fee is $495. Registration fee credits received from the cancelled 2020 Spring Meeting may be applied to the registration fees for the 2020 Summer Meeting and 2020 Fall Meeting, the NAIC reminded members.
Plans call for the Summer Meeting to be spread over a three-week period, beginning the week of July 27 and wrapping up the week of August 10, as shown below.
Tentative Overview of Summer National Meeting Schedule:
Week of July 27: Working Groups, Subgroups and other meetings.
Week of August 3: Task Force meetings
Week of August 10: Standing Committees and Executive Committee meetings, along with EX/Plenary and special programs.
For meetings and events scheduled for the week of August 10, the NAIC intends to use a virtual meeting platform that will allow for a more "interactive, attendee-friendly, experience." More details on the platform will be provided with registration materials on June 23.
