Statement of Principles

Insert picture here


Actions of the Iowa Business Council in furtherance of its Mission, Vision, and Purpose are founded on the following principles:

  • Non-partisanship
  • Integrity
  • Honesty
  • Ethics
  • Professionalism

The Iowa Business Council has a long history of advocacy work in business policy, primarily on the state level.  Significantly, it has been clear to IBC Members from the start that the organization must remain non-partisan.  As a result, it does not endorse candidates for political office nor does it have a political action committee.  Periodically, the Council will endorse specific public policies it believes will result in economic benefit to the state.  Policymakers often seek the opinions and advice of IBC Members on issues.  The Governor, majority and minority Legislative leadership, State agency heads, and other public officials are invited regularly to meet with Council Members to engage in candid conversations about important issues of the day.

IBC has created its “Statement of Principles” to identify key areas of focus it follows and for which it will advocate.  By developing principles, as opposed to registering support or opposition on specific pieces of legislation, the Council maintains its non-partisan status yet is still able to offer guidance to those who seek input from Iowa business leaders.
