Thank You for Your Membership

As 2016 comes to a close, it is important to express our appreciation for all of the member-firms that make up the Master Builders of Iowa. This Association exists for its members and their employees who work and do business in Iowa's commercial construction industry.

MBI is committed to providing a wide array of services that are exclusive to MBI-member companies. Offerings like Training Vault, the MBI App and our job board are examples of how MBI strives to enhance the value of the membership dollar.

In addition to traditional programs like education, training, legislative representation and safety, MBI also embarked on an aggressive workforce development campaign in 2016 called the Build Iowa Initiative and created Construction Week. Both of these efforts focused on recognizing the industry as a career option that offers great opportunities.

Like most in this industry, we are optimistic and excited about 2017 in how this organization stays true to its mission of being the essential resource for improving member performance and promoting a business environment favorable to the construction industry.

All of us at MBI would like to wish you a happy and prosperous New Year!!

Why Your Company Should Start Using the Training Vault in 2017
The complete line-up of events and sessions for the 2017 Annual Winter Conference will be sent out to members in the next two weeks. This year's conference is sure to draw crowds again and there are only 12 exhibit spaces remaining. Exhibitor space is sold as one package price, which includes a draped table, 2 chairs, wireless internet, electricity, and in some cases, meal tickets. The Prairie Meadows Events & Conference Center allows for the conference to be held on one level, with seminars, exhibits and special events all in close proximity to each other, increasing an exhibitor's exposure to attendees. The onsite hotel accommodations for conference attendees, free adjacent parking, onsite restaurants and entertainment are also a big hit.
Please read over the exhibitor brochure and contract , which explains the show format for 2017 in further detail. For questions, please contact Tania Bowman at (515) 657-4390 or
