ABI's Annual Events Showcase Excellence in Iowa

November 7, 2023 | Iowa Agriculture Feeds the World Chad Reece, ABI Vice Chair, Winnebago Industries,

We hope you enjoy this edition of ABI’s Business Monthly, which features some great ABI members that help make Iowa agriculture work… and work well.

Last month, ABI held the owa Manufacturing Conference at the FFA Enrichment Center in Ankeny. The annual conference, geared towards manufacturers of all sizes, provided significant content for participants.  Great speakers and extensive networking marked the day with ABI members from across the state.

A highlight of the agenda was the annual Legends in Manufacturing Awards, hosted by ABI’s Elevate Advanced Manufacturing program. This event has established itself as one of the premier gatherings for manufacturers in our state. It's a time when we celebrate and acknowledge the contributions of ABI member companies and their visionary leaders. If you couldn’t attend, you missed out on one of the year's most remarkable events. Make your plans now to be a part of this event next fall.

Also last month, the ABI Foundation held the first of eight sessions with the 42nd class of Leadership Iowa. 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 better.

As these events illustrate, ABI works all year long to advance an agenda that provides value to your business. Growing your business and growing Iowa communities is the top priority for ABI. 

Finally, and in keeping with fantastic events, the 2024 ABI Taking Care of Business Conference is coming your way June 4-6 in Davenport. Watch for more information soon and make your plans now to attend. You will be glad you did!
