Promote Important Issues at Iowa Business Day on the Hill

The 2018 legislative session is a little over one month old, and already many proposals have come forward that could affect Iowa businesses — both positive and negative. Iowa legislators need to hear from business leaders as they weigh these pieces of legislation.

Iowa Business Day on the Hill offers a perfect opportunity to communicate with your legislators at the Statehouse next month.

This year, ABI is partnering with other business organizations, including the National Federation of Independent Business of Iowa (NFIB), the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and the Iowa Chamber Alliance, to host this event to provide both business leaders and lawmakers with even greater awareness of the issues affecting Iowa businesses.

Those who attended last year’s event heard from legislative leaders about significant reforms that were being debated. Attendees also had the opportunity to advocate to their legislators about workers’ compensation reform, which ultimately passed the Iowa House and Senate and was signed by the governor a few weeks later.

In addition to advocating for policies that promote more jobs and economic growth in Iowa, the day is an opportunity to celebrate and share the important role Iowa businesses play in their communities and the state.

On Tuesday, March 13, participants will receive an update on activity at the Legislature before heading to the Capitol to meet with lawmakers.

Legislators need to hear firsthand from employers and employees in their districts about how decisions being made at the Statehouse are affecting everyday Iowans. Join us March 13 to help educate Iowa’s elected officials on the issues important to Iowa businesses.
