Most people are unaware of the existence of the Consumer Insurance Council.
It is a group created in the 1980s to help people navigate the world of insurance and to advise the Colorado Insurance Commissioner. Discussions involve auto, property, health, title, homeowner and casualty insurance.
The Colorado Division of Insurance is part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies. Its mission is to regulate the insurance industry and to assist consumers with insurance issues. DORA is charged with promoting a fair and competitive business environment in Colorado.
There are 15 members of CIC, one for each of the seven state congressional districts and one at large. It meets eight times a year in Denver. Members serve for two year terms without pay.
Recently, I was appointed to represent the Western Slope along with a member from Grand Junction. Anyone who has questions is issues about insurance can contact dora.colorado.gov/insurance, may call 303-894-7499 or 1-800-930-3745 or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
