The American Association of Crop Insurers (AACI) is a nonprofit industry service organization representing the interests of insurance companies, agents, and adjusters involved in the Federal crop insurance program. AACI's reinsured company members write more than 80 percent of the crop insurance sold by private companies nationwide.
AACI devotes 100 percent of its resources to improving the crop insurance program. AACI's primary purpose is governmental relations with Congress, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and other executive branch agencies whose decisions influence the program.
Governmental relations efforts include background education, advocacy for program continuation, funding, positive change, response to questions, media relations, general information distribution, and influencing the legislative and administrative rulemaking processes.
AACI is widely recognized on Capitol Hill as the leading source of crop insurance information and advice on legislative and administrative proposals. AACI is a member of a coalition of groups in Washington working together to improve the risk management options for America's farmers.
