The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) is looking for applicants for its 2011 Consumer Liaison Program.

Established in 1992, the program provides funding for qualified organizations to represent the interests of consumers at NAIC meetings, the association’s announcement notes.

The NAIC, Kansas City, Mo., defines a consumer organization as a national, state or local group that seeks to protect the interests of consumers in the regulation of insurance. Qualified candidates for consumer liaison must be committed to consumer interests in insurance regulation and represent a non-profit group whose aims do not potentially conflict with those of consumers.

Consumer groups can also participate in NAIC meetings without funding, the announcement notes.

The application deadline is Oct. 31.
