NCOIL HIGHLIGHTS FEBRUARY AS INSURANCE CAREERS MONTH
Supports Effort to Inspire Young Professionals to Choose Insurance as a Career
Manasquan, NJ – The National Council of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL) highlights February as the 4 th annual Insurance Careers Month. With more than 850 partners, the Insurance Careers Movement works to engage the next generation for careers in insurance.
“As insurance policy makers, we are always looking to make sure those entering the workforce are aware of opportunities in the insurance industry” said LA Sen. Dan “Blade” Morrish, NCOIL President. “I know personally, I want the best and brightest young people in Louisiana to enter the insurance industry.”

“It is critical that young people consider the insurance industry as a career” said Commissioner Tom Considine, NCOIL CEO. “I know as a young professional with a few years of private practice after law school, my career trajectory positively shifted after I accepted a position at MetLife where I stayed for 18 years only to leave to be the Insurance Commissioner in New Jersey.”
NCOIL is a national legislative organization with the nation’s 50 states as members, represented principally by
legislators serving on their states’ insurance and financial institutions committees. NCOIL writes Model Laws in
insurance and financial services, works to preserve the State jurisdiction over insurance as established by the
McCarran-Ferguson Act seventy years ago, and to serve as an educational forum for public policymakers and
interested parties. Founded in 1969, NCOIL works to assert the prerogative of legislators in making State policy
when it comes to insurance and educate State legislators on current and longstanding insurance issues.
