A question from Yahoo! Answers:
National professional insurance organization?
I am trying to find out if there is a national organization for professional insurance companies? Not looking for actual insurance companies, but a larger umbrella association or organization that they would be members of.
There really isn’t one. The insurance business is segmented, so life companies have no overlapping interests with property and casualty companies or reinsurers. Additionally, insurance is not federally regulated, so there is no need to form a national association to present a united front to regulators. Finally, there are stock and mutual insurance companies, which have different regulatory agendas.
Anyhow, here are some links you can check out:
National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC):
American Council of Life Insurers
Insurance Information Institute
