ABI Attends Tri-State Governors’ Conference

October 24, 2019

On Monday, Mike Ralston and Nicole Crain traveled to Siouxland to participate in the Tri-State Governors' Conference. The biennial event, hosted by the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce, a great economic development and business advocacy organization in northwest Iowa, features governors from Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. All states are focused on attracting and retaining workers. Gov. Noem of South Dakota talked about the devastating floods, Gov. Ricketts of Nebraska spoke about tax reform, and Gov. Reynolds discussed all the innovative workforce solutions taking place in Iowa and provided an update on Future Ready Iowa. The luncheon was followed by an issues conversation about hot topics in the Siouxland region. ABI appreciated the opportunity to participate and connect with Gov. Reynolds and many ABI members.
