Learn How Other Leaders Keep Up on Best Practices

April 13, 2018 | Staying on top of trends: Iowa leaders read, listen to sharpen skills David Zrostlik, ABI Chair, Stellar Industries, Garner,

Welcome to another edition of Business Record Iowa. There’s a wealth of great information in this month’s newsmagazine.

The cover story looks at what leaders are reading and listening to (things like books, blogs and podcasts). It’s an informative and fun read. If you’re like me, you enjoy learning how others keep up on best practices.

On another matter, last month’s annual Iowa Business Day on the Hill was a huge success. Thank you to those who participated from all across our state. Day on the Hill provided yet another opportunity for ABI members (and members of the Iowa Chamber Alliance, National Association of Women Business Owners and National Federation of Independent Business) to thank state officials for their service and to discuss pending legislation. Whether a business owner or a legislator, we all want to help make Iowa a better place to live, work and raise a family.

Finally, I’d note two hotels are already sold out for the 2018 Taking Care of Business Conference, ABI’s 115th annual convention. The event will be held in Coralville on June 5-7. The good news is there are still plenty of other lodging options remaining. Please go to www.ABITakingCareOfBusiness.com for more information.

The hospitality, speakers, venues and networking at the conference are the very best you’ll find anywhere in the state. If you and your team attend only one event this year, this is the one that’ll give you the best return on your investment in terms of time, money and resources. I look forward to seeing you and your co-workers in June.

As always, thank you for your support.
