Annual Winter Conference – Registration Now Open!

With the turning of the page to a new year comes the opportunity to get a fresh start on your career goals and the goals of your team, and MBI is here to help!  The first big event of 2019 for the association is the Annual Winter Conference that is scheduled for February 25-27, 2019 at Prairie Meadows Events and Conference Center in Altoona.

This conference has something for everyone including leadership development and safety seminars from high level professional speakers, a packed trade show atmosphere, and great keynote speakers for the awards programs.

Ring in the New Year with a New Approach to Safety Training!

Each new year on the calendar brings the idea of resolutions, changing how we do things, and a fresh start. Be it personally or professionally, we all tend to try new things in January and in many cases by the time the snow melts, we have forgotten about our commitment to ourselves and others.

Don’t let your safety training be another unsuccessful New Year’s resolution, instead, lean on Master Builders of Iowa and our Training-on-Demand program to deliver high level safety training for your team throughout the year. 

Thank You 2019 Winter Conference Sponsors!
