ABI Members: Well-read and Well-informed

October 11, 2019 | ABI writes Cindy Dietz, ABI Chair, Collins Aerospace, Cedar Rapids,

This edition of Business Record Iowa features ABI members who have written books. It’s no surprise that ABI members tend to be well-read and well-informed. And it’s certainly no surprise that the authors and books you will see featured here are interesting and thought-provoking. I hope you enjoy the article.

On a different matter, ABI is in the middle of a multitude of events of special interest to Iowa manufacturers. The annual Legends in Manufacturing Awards Dinner, the Iowa Advanced Manufacturing Conference with keynote speaker and Winnebago CEO Michael Happe, and the manufacturing matchmaking event were just last week. The digital manufacturing roadshow is coming up in the next few weeks. Go to www.iowaabi.org for more information and to register for this high-value event.

If you tend to focus a bit further into the future, it is not too early to finalize your plans to attend two other important ABI events. On January 15, 2020, ABI will hold its annual Legislative Reception. This event draws hundreds of Iowa business leaders and more elected officials of both parties than any other similar event. And June 9-11 is the 2020 Taking Care of Business Conference, ABI’s 117th annual convention. Cedar Rapids is pulling out all the stops to make sure your 2020 conference experience is the best ever! The conference is simply Iowa’s very best business event of the year, and you will not want to miss it.

In the meantime and as always, thank you for your support of ABI and for helping ABI put your future in focus!
