The National Crop Insurance Services (NCIS) 2019 Annual Convention was held mid-February in San Diego, California. Several FMH employees attended this year’s conference along with other industry professionals including those from agencies, AIPs, and reinsurance brokers. Several informative and educational discussions from speakers in various agriculture sectors presented the convention.
“The NCIS conference is a great place for FMH to get congressional and political updates and hear the latest on issues affecting the crop insurance industry and rural America,” said Curtis Swain, FMH Vice President of Legal. “It was insightful to hear from a diverse panel of commodity association and farm credit representatives discussing the importance of crop insurance to their respective industries.”
During their time at the conference, attendees were able to network with one another and had a chance to meet with RMA representatives to discuss the new farm bill changes.
“Apart from the meetings and presentations, the crop conference gives FMH leadership the chance to personally connect with reinsurers, agents, and industry colleagues, as well as members of Congress and RMA officials,” added Swain.
