The 2018 MBI Annual Report
On behalf of the MBI Board of Directors, we are pleased to present the 2018 MBI Annual Report . We encourage you to review the report as it gives you a perspective of how your association is engaged to improve member performance and promote a business environment favorable to the Iowa construction industry.

The MBI Annual Report will highlight many of the primary accomplishments of this past year. Be it workforce development, networking programs or our first class complement of leadership classes, MBI was active in showing a return on your investment into the Association.

The report will also touch on the many facets of MBI's strategic plan. 2018 was the second year of our 3-year strategic plan which serves as our road map in meeting the needs of the membership and the industry.

All in all, the 2018 Annual Report will show that MBI is as active and engaged as ever. This Association is strong and is committed to serving members’ needs and the priorities of the industry, and we are grateful for your continued support and commitment to this organization.  
Time to Update Your Employee List?
Periodically, we encourage Training Vault Administrators at MBI member firms to take the time to make sure we have the most current roster to assure your company and employees are gaining the most value from Training Vault. As the 2018-19 training season is in full swing, we want to remind administrators to update their employee roster as soon as possible.

The updated Training Vault 2.0 system includes several notification features such as registration notification, credential notification, and expired training notification. One critical feature of Training Vault 2.0 is the ability of a company’s Training Vault Administrator to view the company employee roster then submit additions and removals of that list electronically.

Here are the steps to updating your company roster:

To view your roster:
1.       Login using the company admin username and password
2.       Click Reports | Select Employee Report | Click Download Employee Report

To submit additions to the employee report:
1.       Click Employees | Select Request Employee Addition
2.       Complete the form on the screen
3.       Click Submit

To submit removals from the employee report:
1.       Click Employees | Select Request Employee Removal
2.       Select the employee from the dropdown box and complete the rest of the form on the screen
3.       Click Submit

If you have questions or need assistance with these procedures or anything in Training Vault, please contact Tom Fulcher at
