The Breakfast of Professionalism Champions
The Academy’s professionalism breakfast on Dec. 15 at the fall meeting of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners was the setting for the Academy’s ongoing dialogue with regulators on professionalism topics. The breakfast provided both an open discussion forum for specific topics raised by regulators and a presentation led by Academy members and staff, followed by more informal meetings with regulators. Agenda items included Committee on Qualifications activities and the opportunity to develop Specific Qualification Standards; a call for regulator feedback on Specific Qualification Standards like PBR, ACA, etc.; release of the Academy’s Precept 13 discussion paper; and discussion of a series of regulator-only webinars on professionalism throughout 2014.
