Each year the ACA holds a conference which provide beneficial information to agricultural claims management and staff in the commercial ag or the farm and ranch industry.

The next Agricultural Claims Conference is August 24-25, 2021. Click the link for more conference information.

Virtual Mini-Conferences

Please join for additional training opportunities during the year.  We learned in 2020 that you can hold quality conferences virtually that are tailored to fit into your workday while providing critical information updates about important topics when you need it most.  Some examples from our mini- conference included:

  • Over payment of claims
  • Impact of the Derecho
  • Changes ahead of us with Dicamba
  • Learned about toxicity in edible vegetation - what can be salvaged and what has to be destroyed
  • Learned scoping of combine damage and when it's time to replace it
  • Crop Liability work through losses and determine settlements
  • Networking was set up through SLACK to communicate with the sponsors, speakers, and other attendees
  • Virtual Happy Hour with recording artist Ayla Brown who took requests for music, and performed her original music.  Families joined and it was a big hit.
  • The next virtual conference is set for August 24-25, 2021
  • The ACA plans to hold two virtual mini-conferences each year in addition to the annual Ag Claims Conference.  The Ag Claims Conference will return to a live event when it is safe to do so.
