Thankful for ABI Leaders

November 11, 2022 | Showing Gratitude in Business Kim Augspurger, ABI Chair, Pigott,

ABI’s annual Legends in Manufacturing awards dinner and Manufacturing Conference were held last month. Both events were successful with great attendance, networking and programming.

Also in October, the ABI Foundation kicked off the 2022-23 Leadership Iowa sessions in Jefferson. LI is the nation's oldest statewide leadership development program, and well over a thousand alumni are now working to make their companies, and their communities, a better place.

Several webinars took in place in October as well, and we are looking forward to more programming in November.

As you know, ABI is always about the future. However, my reason for noting these past activities and events is to highlight the fact that ABI works all year-long to advance an agenda that provides value to your business. Growing your business and growing Iowa communities is what ABI is all about. You can see that, thanks to your support and with the leadership of the Board of Directors, that agenda is well in hand.

As a former business owner, that kind of leadership is just one of the things I am thankful for. Read this edition of Business Record Iowa to see what other business leaders are thankful for this season.

Finally, I can share that plans for the 2023 Taking Care of Business Conference are well underway, and it will be outstanding, as always. So don’t forget to mark your calendars for June 13-15, and join us in Cedar Rapids. You will be glad you did!
