Celebrating Success and Embracing Iowa’s Financial Services Industry

July 24, 2023 | Financial Firms Thrive in Business-Friendly Iowa Mike Ralston, President, ABI, mralston@iowaabi.org

On behalf of ABI, welcome to this month’s edition of ABI’s Business Monthly. The cover story highlights the financial services industry in Iowa. This is a robust segment of our state’s economy (and an important industry segment within ABI), and I hope you enjoy reading more about it.

This edition of the Business Monthly also provides another opportunity to note that under the leadership of Immediate Past Chair Kim Augspurger, and thanks to your support, ABI enjoyed another great year. With your help, we plan to continue to build upon that tremendous track record of success going forward. All of us at ABI are thankful for the opportunity to serve ABI and its members during the coming year, and for the opportunity to help advance ABI’s mission.

At this time of year, we are celebrating another successful annual conference. Last month’s Taking Care of Business Conference in Cedar Rapids was a smashing success. If you weren’t there, you missed one of the best business meetings and networking opportunities of the year. Make plans now to join us in the Quad Cities next June for the 2024 conference. You will not want to miss it!

Our goal this coming year for ABI is to build on the association’s tremendous record of positive impact on Iowa and Iowa businesses. Thank you in advance for your help and support as we continue to move forward.
