IEDA Survey
Please help Iowa’s economic recovery and growth by taking a few minutes to complete this NEW survey , developed by the University of Northern Iowa’s (UNI) Institute for Decision Making and UNI’s Strategic Marketing Services. 

This new survey is a follow-up to UNI’s survey of businesses in mid-March. Participation in the survey is vital to state efforts to understand the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Iowa businesses and organizations. The Iowa Economic Development Authority will use survey results to inform public policy on recovery and growth, including potential resources for businesses.

The deadline to complete this survey is Friday, May 22 at 5PM.
Wellness Tip
As the weather becomes warmer consider riding on one of the many bike trails throughout Mason City . There are numerous physical benefits of bicycling but also mental benefits such as reducing stress and improving productivity! Take a half an hour break from the computer, grab your kiddos and take a “sunshine break.”
