A Note from the ACA Executive Director:

We are excited to announce we will be returning to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, for the 2024 Annual Ag Claims Conference. A second year at this location will allow us to further expand in this new region as well as to grow as a provider of high-quality training focused on our industry’s requirements.

Since our 2023 conference, we’ve learned rising costs and tight budgets are issues for many. We have worked hard to get ahead of everyone’s budget cycles and are therefore launching registration early. In addition, we are adding a tier to the price structure of the conference, which is tied to our 2023 attendance price.

As we open registration months early, our agenda is not finalized, but we have been listening to feedback about needed topics and training methods that will ensure attendees can learn new skills that are immediately transferable to their work at home. We will be including more scenario-based activities and tools that will make your jobs easier. Last year we incorporated underwriting concerns into our events, and this practice will continue for 2024 as well as other areas of concern like shortage of agriculture P&C adjusters and the impacts of weather on claims. We are also searching for a keynote speaker that will address the impacts of insurance claims on the cooperative or farmer based on the 2023 claim season. Please see below for more topics we hope to include as well as speakers, but note that at this early stage, some areas may change. However, we assure you, even without a firm agenda, we will maintain the same high-quality event and even push to make the 2024 conference our best yet.

We know you have a choice of several events hosted annually by different organizations around the industry. The ACA strives to provide world-class education, training, and support that differentiates us from others. We hope with early registration and all the benefits that back the ACA, you’ll add the 2024 Annual Ag Claims Conference to your early spring calendar. We look forward to the conference, your support, and growing together; we hope to see you in Nashville.

Hotel Accommodations


Reserve Room Now


  • Hotel accommodations are available at the Opryland, the conference venue; the cost of accommodations is not included in the conference registration fee.  The ACA has secured a conference rate with the Opryland for the event and has set aside a block of rooms.  The ACA will monitor the number of rooms remaining in the block and can adjust to increase the block if rooms are still available.  The reservation cutoff for the ACA block of rooms at the conference rate is January 22, 2024 at 5:00 PM CST.  We recommend making reservations early as you may cancel without penalty up to 11:59 PM local hotel time 3 days before arrival.  After the cutoff, there is a hefty penalty that will be charged to the card used to reserve the room.  It is the responsibility of attendees to make reservations for hotel accommodations; the ACA does not make reservations as part of your reservation process.  The hotel reservations phone number is 877.351.5021.  To receive the conference rate, please provide the following:
