#CIRB16 Attendees Gather in California

CIRB Annual MeetingLeaders in the crop insurance business are gathered in California for the annual meeting of the Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau.  On the program this year are presentations about the political climate in this election year, the climate itself and economic challenges facing the world ag market. In addition, first-year members of the CIRB Emerging Leaders Program will be on hand to share their experiences. The goal of the program is to help bring younger people into the industry, which like farming itself, is being led by an aging demographic.
