The Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau (CIRB) Emerging Leaders Program just keeps growing.

This is only the fourth ELP class for CIRB and the program is already paying dividends to the organization and the industry, as well as the more than 30 participants. Previous ELP participants have become active recruiters for the program which is designed to help professionals in the crop insurance industry increase their knowledge and hands-on experience with key issues.
I had a chance to interview four of this year’s class to talk about their experience with the program so far.
