The Iowa Business Council (IBC) serves as a catalyst for economic vitality and growth throughout the state.
The Iowa Business Council seeks to enhance the state's economic vitality by providing a forum for members to generate ideas, identify key challenges, and recommend sustainable public policy by providing members:
The Council identifies issues and priorities, evaluates options, and assists in implementing strategic solutions through collaborative public/private partnerships.
Membership value starts with the regular interaction and relationships that develop among the leaders of Iowa's most impactful businesses and universities. Through regular and organized discussions, these executives from multiple industries and disciplines share insights and experiences with their peers for the benefit of their respective organizations and the state as a whole. The composition and caliber of the Council is significant for government leadership, in that it provides opportunity for senior State officials to share their perspectives and agendas with a critical group of top Iowa business and education leaders in one venue - access that is unparalleled with any other organization in the state. IBC Members working together on a common agenda is a powerful force for change.
IBC affords its Members the unique opportunity to acquire information and gain perspective on important public policy issues through presentations and candid discussion in a private setting, often in the presence of leaders from the highest levels of State government. The Council periodically arranges meetings that focus on issue-specific items of Member interest which may drive priority initiatives or advocacy agendas, such as STEM or pre-K early childhood education.
