Industry Relations

It is no secret that Iowa’s commercial construction industry is rising at a record-setting pace. This has been great for our members, but a rapid expansion in work often equates to a few growing pains, as is the case with our industry’s current workforce shortage.  In response to our members’ consistent demand for growth in our industry’s labor force, MBI has put together a plan to bring awareness to this need, and give our members the necessary tools to recruit the talent they need to move their companies forward.

The Master Builders of Iowa’s Articles of Incorporation state in part that the purpose of the Association is “to promote and establish fair dealings and equitable relations between contractors engaged in building construction and between owners, engineers, architects, subcontractors, labor and the general public”.  For many years the Industry relations activities of the Association were facilitated through an Industry Relations Committee comprised of Regular and Associate members.  In 2004, the Industry Relations Committee gave way two new and distinct groups that carry on much of the industry relations activities for the Association.  

Industry relations continue to be a top priority of the Association and the Association is always looking for new and different ways to work with a variety of industry groups to advance the vision and mission of the Association.  MBI representatives do an excellent of representing the contractor’s point of view on issues that can have an impact on profitability and fair dealings between MBI members, owners and design professionals.
