comprehensive. Included are analytical efforts
in relation to policy and legal issues generally,
antitrust compliance training and monitoring,
development of loss adjustment procedures, agronomic research and public relations. Our suite
of services also includes economic and actuarial review, education and training in the form of
loss adjuster schools, and national conferences
and regional/state meetings. In the private CropHail segment, our résumé is rounded out by our
service as a Crop-Hail advisory organization and
statistical agent licensed by the various state insurance departments.
For our readers who may not be aware, or at
least tangentially aware of the NCIS Committee
structure, it is probably worthwhile to provide
a little background on our Committee process
and the important role these Committees play
in the success of our industry. The seven NCIS
Standing Committees and their responsibilities
vary depending on whether or not they are focused on the state-regulated Crop-Hail business
or Federal crop insurance. However, committees
like Training and Communications focus on the

entire crop insurance program. Here is a quick
rundown of our various standing committees
and their respective roles.
Starting with Crop-Hail insurance, the CropHail Policy, Procedure, & Loss Adjustment
Committee (CHPPLA) evaluates both the policies and the loss adjustment procedures utilized
by NCIS members. This is no small task as the
Committee reviews the Crop-Hail policies filed
by NCIS in each state. In addition, this Committee works with NCIS staff on the development of
industry loss adjustment procedures. Updates
to these procedures originate from NCIS' Agriculture Research program. Agronomic research
projects that produce the results for these updates are conducted at university experiment stations and agricultural colleges across the United
States, as well as some locations in Canada. The
research program dates back to the early 1900s.
There are several videos about the history of the
program and its results that can be found on the
NCIS YouTube page at http://bit.ly/2KNLBGe.
The Crop-Hail Actuarial & Statistical Committee (A&S) reviews the development of the
industry's actuarial filings, which are prepared by

NCIS' actuarial and analytical team. NCIS files
its actuarial materials with approximately onehalf of the states each year. The A&S Committee
also reviews industry statistical data reporting
requirements.
Communications & Outreach Committee
(C&O): C&O provides direction on NCIS' annual communications plan - including strategies,
messages, tactics, tools, etc.   C&O is also charged
with over-seeing the efforts of the NCIS outreach
activities with organizations who work with
limited resource and/or socially disadvantaged
farmers, including extension agents, community-based organizations, bankers, and other ancillary industries that need to know the importance
of crop insurance and understand it.
The MPCI Policy, Procedure, & Loss Adjustment Committee (MPPPLA) focuses on
the federal component of crop insurance. The
Committee reviews and recommends changes
to policy provisions and endorsements, underwriting and loss procedures and forms, and recommends agronomic research. The work of this
group is essential to the support of industry loss
adjustment standards and its efforts are core to
the NCIS mission.
Technology & Information Processing Committee (TIP): This group advises on automation
and technological support of industry data processing. The "TIPsters" are the industry "techies"
and information technology experts. The Committee is also responsible for industry input and
analysis of federal crop insurance processing and
Crop-Hail data quality improvements, timeliness
and simplification. TIP also facilitates communication between RMA and the industry on information and data processing issues.
Tasked with promoting industry-wide education and training standards, the Training & Education Committee oversees NCIS conferences
and schools, and the development of training
products that are responsive to member needs.
These services benefit members by providing
uniform training and educational standards and
promote a professional image for the industry.
The Committee also provides direction to staff
on industry training needs and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors regarding
industry training standards and practices.
The Underwriting & Operations Committee (U&O) is a somewhat recent addition to the
NCIS standing committee structure. It was born
out of the realization that there were multiple
procedural and operational issues involved in
