The Presidential Post, March 21, 2014

Stacie Lo Van 2014I would like to take a minute to say THANK YOU for your continued investment in PDI! Membership renewals this year have remained strong which speaks to our collective success in the economic development arena.

As a PDI member, you have access to a host of resources to help you do economic development in Iowa:

  • Exclusive access to the PDI Post, delivered 18 times each year, and PDI's website will keep you up-to-date on the latest economic development news in Iowa.
  • The PDI Spring Event and Fall Conference are both are designed to bring you new and vital information on opportunities, issues, and trends pertinent to economic development in our state. The conferences also provide you with the opportunity to network with your peers and learn what is working or not working in their region.
  • PDI continues to represent our members with a strong voice at the State Capitol. With the legislature now in session, our lobbyists and leaders are regularly at the capitol making sure our economic development priorities are top of mind and keeping you informed of important developments.
  • Have you taken advantage of PDI's scholarship funds or the mentorship program? PDI members are encouraged to apply for scholarships to attend educational courses, such as Heartland Economic Development, Economic Development Institute, IEDC training courses and many more. Whether you are looking for a career mentor or one for a specific issue, check out our website for a resource coach who has expertise in the area you need.

I hope you are taking advantage of these benefits of membership. Thank you again for your commitment to economic development in Iowa! Together we are PDI!
