According to a new report by the R Street Institute’s 2017 Insurance Regulation Report Card published recently, Vermont again has the best insurance regulatory environment.
Vermont has been named as having the best regulatory environment for the fourth straight year and the fifth time in six years and the report cites developments such as Gov. Phil Scott signing H. 85 to expand the state’s captive insurance regulatory regime to cover agency captives last May. Vermont earned the only A+ in this year’s report card! Congratulations to DFR Commissioner Mike Pieciak, Deputy Commissioner Dave Provost and their team.
What greater impetus is needed, then to join VCIA on January 24th for our annual Legislative Day in Montpelier, Vermont, the coolest state capital in the country? Legislative Day is a chance for our members to meet the State’s top political leaders and hear about the issues that are facing Vermont in the upcoming year. It’s also a great chance for the captive industry to say “thank you” for the over 30 years of support from politicians and policy leaders from all stripes: Democrats, Republicans, Progressives and Independents.
This special event, for VCIA Members only, includes the VCIA Quarterly Board Meeting, lunch with Vermont Lt. Governor David Zuckerman, Commerce Secretary Michael Schirling and special guest speaker Jeff Carr, Vermont’s State Economist.
There will be meetings with legislative leaders and presentations to House and Senate committees. And don’t miss the Q&A opportunity with Dave Provost and the DFR Team after lunch! The event concludes with a fabulous evening reception where legislators, elected and appointed officials and VCIA Members mingle and exchange information about Vermont’s captive insurance industry and make plans for its continued success in 2018.
So, if you haven’t done so already, register here for a great day!
Thank you all very much, and I look forward to hearing from you!
