MO Insurance Director Lindley-Myers Elected President of the NAIC

Members of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) elected officers for 2023 during the closing activities of its Fall 2022 National Meeting in Tampa, Florida. Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance Director Chlora Lindley-Myers was elected President for the 2023 term. She is the first woman of color to hold the position since the NAIC was founded in 1871. “I am excited to take on this challenge and yet humbled by the faith my fellow NAIC members have shown by electing me,” said Lindley-Myers. “While it’s taken over 150 years for the NAIC to have a woman of color leading the organization, I have high hopes that this first step will open the door to many qualified women of color to follow me. We have a great deal of work to do for our consumers. I am eager to work with my fellow Commissioners, Directors, and Superintendents to ensure that work is done well.”
