About the Iowa Chamber Alliance

The Iowa Chamber Alliance is a non-partisan coalition that represents the leading Chambers of Commerce and economic development organizations throughout Iowa that focus on promoting economic growth policies and initiatives.

Mission

The mission of the Iowa Chamber Alliance is to drive a policy agenda to grow the state of Iowa on behalf of our over 17,000 members who range from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies. Growing the state includes developing a policy structure where communities can build attractive places for employers to invest and for employees to find opportunities to thrive in those investments.

    • Long-term statewide policies and programs that provide reliable economic development tools for encouraging business relocation, expansion and entrepreneurship in Iowa communities.
    • A regulatory and tax climate conducive to making Iowa the most competitive state in the nation for attracting business expansion opportunities and fostering the growth of new and existing businesses.
    • An ongoing funding mechanism for building infrastructure and amenities that improve the quality of life in Iowa communities.
    • Streamlined governments at all levels that are efficient, cost-effective and responsive to business needs by finding ways to use tax dollars more wisely while improving services.
