Coop Legislative Dinner and Coop Day on the Hill

Every year we at the Iowa Institute partner with Land O Lakes to host a Coop Legislative Dinner and Coop Day on the Hill.  As usual, the legislative events coincide with our Board Presidents and Managers Meetings on February 20-21 in Ankeny.

The newly appointed Iowa Department of Natural Resources Director, Chuck Gipp, will keynote the dinner.  Director Gipp will provide some background on the Nutrient Reduction Strategy and other priorities of the department. New House Agriculture Chair, Representative Pat Grassley will also be in attendance to discuss his priories for the Ag committee.

The following morning, attendees will make their way to the Iowa Statehouse for a legislative reception with their local legislators.  This is a wonderful opportunity to foster relationships between our local coops and their local legislators.  These discussions on the Hill are another reminder to our elected officials how crucial coops are to the rural economy in Iowa.

If you are an Iowa Coop Board President or Manager, please plan to attend!  More information and agendas can be found on the calendar of events page:

Thank you to Land O Lakes for their continued sponsorship of both events!
