The 57th Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau (CIRB) Annual Meeting was a virtual success.

Michael Torrey, CIRB Executive Vice President, said they were pleasantly surprised to have a record turnout for their first ever virtual meeting, which gave many more a chance to participate. “Allowing several individuals within companies, and participants from overseas, and even a lot of non-members, to be exposed to the CIRB program,” said Torrey.

The program featured an agricultural economic outlook, policy forecast, and a timely panel on the role of crop insurance in climate change policy. Audio recordings of the meeting presentations and interviews are available on the CIRB Annual Meeting virtual newsroom.

CIRB is co-hosting a virtual 2021 Crop Insurance Convention tomorrow, along with National Crop Insurance Services (NCIS) and American Association of Crop Insurers (AACI). The virtual joint convention will be held February 9 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM CST.

In this interview, Torrey talks about the CIRB annual meeting and the state of the crop insurance industry.
