In addition to National Crop Insurance Services, crop insurers are represented by several organizations that work closely together to promote a strong farm safety net. Among them are:

  • American Association of Crop Insurers (AACI) – A national trade association that represents numerous insurance providers and agents. Its purpose is to promote public policies that foster the effective and efficient construction, regulation and delivery of crop insurance. AACI was founded by industry leaders in 1980 after Congress passed legislation to establish private-sector delivery of Federal crop insurance.
  • Crop Insurance Professionals Association (CIPA) – A membership of independent crop insurance agents that advocates for beneficial legislation and promotes the exchange of information among agents and with farm groups, insurance providers, and lawmakers.
  • Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau (CIRB) – Founded in 1964 and headquartered on Capitol Hill, CIRB represents numerous insurance providers and international reinsurers on crop insurance-related legislative and regulatory matters before the United States government.
  • Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America – Sometimes called the Big “I,” the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America is a national alliance of more than 250,000 businesses that offer all types of insurance and financial services products, including crop insurance.
