Member Information - Iowa Business Council

Member Information


Iowa Business Council (IBC) Members are the chief decision makers of major Iowa employers.  Membership is by invitation only, with special attention given to geographic and industry diversity and corporate citizenship.  Members must agree to participate personally and actively in the organization, and be willing to contribute company resources to support council objectives and initiatives.  


Members of the Iowa Business Council convene four private quarterly meetings each year, with the site rotating among the corporate headquarters of Member companies.  The host is responsible for meeting accommodations, e.g., locale and amenities, transportation to and from the local airport, meals.  The members also participate in policy committee meetings throughout the year. Current policy committees focus on Tax, Career Ready Workforce and Marketing.  

Advocacy Policy

The Iowa Business Council is non-partisan.  Its Chair is the spokesperson for the organization.  IBC does not endorse candidates nor have a political action committee.  Once in office, however, the Council will approach and actively engage with the Governor, leadership of the Iowa House and Senate, and State agency heads regardless of their political affiliation.  As an organization, the Iowa Business Council will take positions on key policy initiatives related to our policy agenda.
