The Iowa City Area Business Partnership strives to affect policy in a way that fosters a better business environment in our community. We achieve this goal through issue advocacy at all levels of government, by providing opportunities for member businesses to network with elected officials, and by playing an active role in the electoral process.

The Business Council on Legislative Affairs is a committee of the Business Partnership that seeks to engage our members in policy issues. If you would like to apply to join this committee, please contact Jennifer Banta for details:
