Promote business issues at Day on the Hill

February 12, 2016 | New year means new ACA reporting requirements

If you were one of the more than 400 Iowa Association of Business and Industry (ABI) members who attended the ABI Legislative Briefing and Reception last month, you understand the importance of communicating with your legislators.

Now, with the 2016 legislative session well underway, it’s important to continue those conversations with lawmakers and keep business issues front of mind. Iowa Business Day on the Hill is an opportunity to do just that.

For the second straight year, ABI is partnering with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) of Iowa to host this event to provide both business people and lawmakers with even greater awareness of the issues affecting Iowa businesses.

This is also an opportunity to celebrate and promote the important role Iowa businesses play in their communities and the state.

This year, Iowa Business Day on the Hill will begin on Monday, March 14, with a networking reception and an opportunity to hear from members of the legislative leadership.

On Tuesday, March 15, participants will receive an update on activity at the Statehouse from ABI and NFIB lobbyists before heading to the Capitol to meet with lawmakers.

Legislators need to hear firsthand from the employers and employees in their districts about how decisions being made at the Statehouse are affecting everyday Iowans. Join us March 14 and 15 to help educate Iowa’s elected officials on the issues important to Iowa businesses.
