A top official at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners is thinking about relocating.

Catherine Weatherford, executive vice president and chief executive officer of the NAIC, Kansas City, Mo., discusses the possibility of a move to Washington, from Kansas City, in a memo sent to the NAIC staff.

Weatherford writes that she is considering the move because “having a stronger presence in Washington, D.C., will enhance the NAIC’s availability and access to consumer organizations, the U.S. Congress and industry trade associations.”

The proposed change “would otherwise have little impact on our operations in Kansas City,” Weatherford writes.
