In yesterday's post, Colorado asks for answers to the unilateral insurance company's timelines for completing construction or replacement I discussed how the Colorado Division of Insurance asks for public comment on the deadlines in certain insurance policies. for repair or replacement of property after loss. RMAPIA's leadership has done an excellent job with Colorado Insurance Commissioner Mike Conway as the first speaker. Here is a biography of Mike Conway:
Michael Conway was appointed Commissioner of the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) by Governor Jared Polis on December 21, 2018 and was confirmed by the State Senate on January 22, 2019. Previously, he was appointed Interim Commissioner for DOI by Governor John Hickenlooper in January 2018. As Commissioner, Conway serves as CEO of DOI and oversees the regulation of Colorado & # 39 ;s insurance industry. His role brings together consumers, the insurance industry and other stakeholders to create an inclusive, firm and fair regulatory approach to all lines of insurance such as car, health, homeowners, life, property and accidents, property rights and employee compensation.
Conway served as DOI's Deputy Commissioner for Consumer and Compliance Services since March 2016. He was involved in developing and guiding DOI's health insurance strategies during a turbulent time for that industry. He briefed the former commissioner and governor's staff on the possible consequences of federal changes to Colorado health insurance regulations. His duties also meant that he would be brought before state legislative committees to advocate the DOI's positions on insurance and its regulation. He cultivated relationships with consumer groups and the insurance industry to create a regulatory environment that helped Colorado consumers but was a fair, equitable game plan for the industry. He also worked within the DOI to establish goals that provided better protection for insurance consumers.
From 2010 to 2016, Conway was Deputy Attorney General for the Colorado State Attorney General's Office, where he represented the DOI in all aspects of insurance industry regulation including mergers and acquisitions, insurance company rehabilitation / liquidation, and manufacturer and business license disputes. . While at the Department of Justice, he worked with the Colorado Attorney General Pro Bono Family Law Clinic and advised clients on divorce and child custody issues. He also worked as a lawyer for Colorado Legal Services and advocated for poor clients regarding condominiums, homelessness prevention, eviction and subsidized housing.
With the exception of three years in Miami for law, Conway has called Colorado home nearly 20 years ago moving to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder.
This event provides an excellent opportunity for public adjusters to explain what you see in the field of the best insurance regulator in Colorado, including on the above-mentioned topic of unilateral deadlines for repair and replacement.
There are eight Rocky Mountain states that make up this association, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. If you are a public adjuster doing business in any of these states, this is a good time to get CE points, capture the most meaningful insights about your practice, and get the chance to talk to the best insurance regulator in Colorado.
Thought for the day
Never be discouraged. If I had been lowered into the lowest pits of Nova Scotia, with the Rocky Mountains piled on top of me, I would hang on, exercise faith and maintain good courage, and I would reach the top.
