Here you will find information pertaining to the public affairs efforts of MBI. A majority of our Government Affairs agenda consists of lobbying efforts. However, you will see that other components consist of coalition efforts, communications and our political action committee (i.e. MBI-PAC). MBI is seen as one of the premiere business associations in the state. This is made evident not only from MBI's presence at the State Capitol, but also at the county, city, and local levels. MBI's government affairs program is focused on an agenda that is pro-business and pro-construction.

MBI's Lobbying Team consists of Scott Norvell and Chad Kleppe. These two individuals ensure that MBI has a full time presence at the Iowa Capitol, as well as an ever increasing presence at local governmental levels.
