Diane Koken talked here about her new role as the president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.[@@]
Commissioners voted at the Kansas City, Mo., group’s fall meeting to have her replace former NAIC President Ernst Csiszar for a 3-month interim term.
Csiszar, the former South Carolina insurance director, gave up his NAIC title when he resigned from his post in South Carolina to head up the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, Des Plaines, Ill.
Koken says she is ready to commit to serve for a full term in 2005 as well as an interim term this year because she believes the NAIC needs continuity of leadership to keep up its efforts to streamline and preserve state insurance regulation.
