BILTIR is committed to an inclusive communication structure where all member feedback is welcomed.  Several committees have been created to solicit input from membership to address regulatory, tax and market developments impacting long-term insurers and reinsurers.

 

BILTIR members are strongly encouraged to join BILTIR committees.  The review and feedback process utilized to respond to regulatory developments takes place within the committees.  Certain communications and meeting invitations from the regulators only occur at the committee level.  BILTIR committee membership ensures that your company will receive announcements of key regulatory developments and have the opportunity to provide feedback.  Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
