Presidential Post - February 15, 2013

BrentwilletI hope you are making plans to join PDI for the 2013 Grow Iowa Day at the Iowa State Capitol on February 27, 2013. Grow Iowa Day is PDI's best opportunity to demonstrate to legislators the strength and breadth of our membership organization. Legislators respond to their constituents which is why it is so important that our members attend in mass and dialogue with them. We realize this important event requires an investment of your time and financial resources, but our history with the Grow Iowa Day has demonstrated a tremendous return on investment with our legislators. During this economic downturn and change in leadership, it is critical that we communicate to legislators that we stand ready to grow Iowa's economy, but need their help in maintaining a business friendly atmosphere.

You don't have to exhibit at Grow Iowa Day to be involved. We need lots of members networking with legislators, helping at the PDI booth, taking photos, etc. If you want more information, contact PDI Headquarters at director@pdiowa.com. There is no snow date.

Thank you to the following organizations who will be exhibiting in the Capitol Rotunda that day:

Ames Economic Development Commission
City of Sioux City
