BALTIMORE – The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) announced that its Executive Committee recently selected Maryland Insurance Commissioner, Al Redmer, Jr., as a board member for its non-profit affiliate, the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).
 
The NAIC is the U.S. standard-setting and regulatory support organization created and governed by the chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories.

NIPR is governed by a board of directors that includes seven members representing the NAIC and six industry members representing a cross-section of the insurance industry.
