Industry Relations

The MBI Annual Winter Conference and Safety Day, on average, bring in over 1,000 participants each year and last year’s conference had nearly 1,400 construction professionals in attendance!  The conference includes awards presentations, professional development seminars and safety training for the commercial construction industry over a 2-day period of time.  Exhibitors have the opportunity to display their products and services and meet with both audiences over a two-day period of time - February 28 – March 1, 2017.

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.
