NAII Authors Tentative Agreement to Take On ACIC

July 22, 2002

The National Association of Independent Insurers (NAII) has a tentative agreement in place to take on the Association of California Insurance Companies (ACIC).

Joe Annotti, assistant vice president for public affairs with the NAII, told Insurance Journal that “Our board of governors has approved a tentative agreement to essentially take over the ACIC. Our members came to us really with the idea. Many of them are also ACIC members. ACIC has a very valuable and well-respected name, and it makes sense for members of both organizations to do such an affiliation.

“I think for NAII, the access to the name and ACIC’s reputation in California political circles allows us to expand our political clout in the state,” Annotti added. “From our perspective, that is a huge benefit. We also think we can enhance the value of ACIC to maybe attract other insurers’ to join ACIC whether or not they’re a member of NAII.”
