March 13, 2023 | Taking Care of Business Conference Showcases Top Speakers, Workshops, Cedar Rapids’ Resilience Kim Augspurger, ABI Chair, PIgott,

As has been noted by others over the past several years, ABI’s annual convention has grown and taken on more importance. Now known as Iowa’s Taking Care of Business Conference, the annual convention is Iowa’s premier general business conference. Attendees experience nationally known speakers, see terrific Iowa venues, and receive information to address current issues and help them lead their companies to greater growth and prosperity. 

Time and again, ABI members tell us what they value most about the conference is the opportunity to connect with fellow Iowa business leaders and to do business with each other. 

Talk of the conference is timely, because this edition of the Business Monthly carries a great cover story about Cedar Rapids. And that city, of course, is the host city for ABI’s 2023 Taking Care of Business Conference. Cedar Rapids is also an important Iowa economic center. 

There is great excitement in Cedar Rapids about ABI coming to town in 

June. Count on the folks there to roll out the red carpet to help make your conference experience the best ever. You will be excited about the hospitality, speakers, venues, and networking that you will see at ABI’s 120th annual meeting. If you have not already done so, finalize your plans now to join your ABI colleagues in Cedar Rapids June 13-15. You do not want to miss it! Registration is open at www.iowaabi.org. Thank you in advance for joining us for ABI’s premier annual event and I look forward to seeing you there.
