Members

The Iowa Business Council is an unparalleled group of 20 chief executives from Iowa’s largest organizations.  In fact, one in six jobs in Iowa are tied to an Iowa Business Council company.  Members agree to participate personally and actively in the organization.  Membership is by invitation only, with special attention given to geographic and industry diversity, as well as corporate citizenship.

Additionally, the council members designate an executive to serve as his/her deputy on special Deputy Committees, which work to advance Iowa Business Council objectives by employing the resources and expertise of the member businesses.
