2020 Conference Shaping Up to Be the Best Ever

February 6, 2020 | Mike Ralston

Mike Ralston, President, ABI

All of us on the staff at ABI have an incredible perk as a daily part of our jobs. We have the opportunity to learn what it takes to have a successful business. Our teachers are the very best found anywhere and they are you, ABI members.

One thing you teach is that providing value for customers is Job One. If that doesn't happen, there is no reason for your customers to buy your products or services. Well, we have customers at ABI, we just happen to call them members. And we better be providing you with value for your investment in the association.

In that regard, ABI and the ABI Foundation produce: 1) the best public policy advocacy in Iowa, 2) meetings and events that can help your business and 3) community and leadership development programs that can improve your community. Because of your counsel and participation, all of these services and programs are constantly being improved.

That's important, and your investment is never, ever taken for granted.

All of that is a lead-in for me to tell you that your counsel and participation has led to the development of yet another fabulous Taking Care of Business Conference. The 2020 conference will be held in Cedar Rapids on June 9-11, and it is shaping up to be the best conference ABI has ever held.

At the Cedar Rapids conference you will find terrific venues and high-value, nationally-known speakers.  You will find fun golf and great social events. And, of course, you will find the very best business networking in Iowa. You truly do not want to miss this event!

I urge you to click on the conference webpage for more information. Please note that registration opens on February 20, so finalize your plans now to attend. And on behalf of ABI Chair Cindy Dietz and the ABI Board of Directors, I look forward to seeing you in Cedar Rapids. You will be glad you came!
