2017 Iowa Legislative Breakfast & Chapter Meeting

Wed, Feb 22 2017 7:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Please join fellow Iowa truss manufacturers for the ITMA Legislative Breakfast in the Legislative Dining Room 116 at the Iowa State Capitol Building on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, from 7:00-9:00 am. Following breakfast, ITMA will hold a chapter meeting from 10:00-11:00 am at Spaghetti Works. All are welcome to attend. Guest speaker Sean Shields of SBCA will follow up on the issues discussed at the breakfast and also discuss the new Component Marketing Toolbox, as well as SBCA’s design and installation technical best practice library created for truss manufacturers.

Republicans control the Iowa House, Senate and Governor’s office for the first time in over two decades.  This consolidation will likely result in the consideration and passage of a wide range of legislation that will benefit manufacturing and construction throughout the state. This is a prime opportunity to ensure your lawmakers hear your thoughts on how they can help improve your business environment. Reach out to your state lawmakers and let them know you’ll be joining ITMA during its Legislative Breakfast on February 22.
