Agent and broker advisory committees

The Office of the Insurance Commissioner appoints members to act as consultants to the agency. They are divided into two groups:

  • One represents life and disability markets.
  • The other represents property and casualty markets.

The commissioner and agency executives meet with committee members twice a year to discuss key issues and developments within the industry.

If you are interested in becoming a member, or you'd like to contact a member, email our committee assistant.
