Special appreciation to the Travel Federation of Iowa for allowing PDI to partner with them on this event.

PDI Members, you need to tell your unique story of why these issues matter to your local community. It is only through sharing our data and stories that legislators will understand the critical nature of their decision on Iowa’s economy. Your efforts are an investment in seeing the change we want in Iowa.

Together, we can accomplish great things.
