Each of our themes and goals will be supported by the investments we make in data, technology and talent. Many of the NAIC's current initiatives and budget for 2018 are designed to lay these foundational pillars on which State Ahead is built.
State Ahead is a three-year blueprint for the NAIC's future, showing the way toward building on existing strengths as a nexus for innovation and a hub of resources for insurance departments to draw upon.
The long-standing goals of solvency monitoring and consumer protection have not changed, but the landscape has. In response, the NAIC must develop and harness new tools, talents and technologies on behalf of its members.
THEME I: Safe, Solvent and Stable Markets
- Goal 1: Provide state insurance regulators with data, training and tools required to support a collaborative regulatory environment that fosters stable financial markets and reliable and affordable insurance products.
THEME II: Consumer Protection and Education
- Goal 2: Ensure that consumer protection keeps pace with changes in the marketplace and consumers have information and education needed for informed decisionmaking.
THEME III: Superior Member Services and Resources
- Goal 3: Provide optimal services to support state insurance departments and equip them with the necessary talent and resources.
- Goal 4: Optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of the NAIC structure.
