Early in his career he brought his expertise to the Crop Hail Insurance Actuarial Association, the NCIS Crop-Hail Actuarial & Statistics Committee and other various industry committees until 1997 when he was elected to the NCIS Board of Directors. During his many year of service Ben was elected twice to hold the position as Chairman of the NCIS Board.

In his effort to bring understanding and credibility to this insurance industry he traveled extensively not just in this country but Europe and Africa as well. In 2003, Ben became CEO of ProAg.
