Industry Relations

Last year’s Construction Industry Reception saw record numbers and it was a great networking experience for all in attendance.  The conference is now known around the Midwest for more than just training.  The annual trade show has become a must-attend aspect of the conference for many contractors.  Be sure to stop and meet with vendors that are displaying their products and services while at this year’s conference.  Visiting with these industry professionals is a great way to build upon your current relationships and to learn about new and innovative products on the market. 

The Master Builders of Iowa’s Articles of Incorporation state in part that the purpose of the Association is “to promote and establish fair dealings and equitable relations between contractors engaged in building construction and between owners, engineers, architects, subcontractors, labor and the general public”.  For many years the Industry relations activities of the Association were facilitated through an Industry Relations Committee comprised of Regular and Associate members.  In 2004, the Industry Relations Committee gave way two new and distinct groups that carry on much of the industry relations activities for the Association.  

Industry relations continue to be a top priority of the Association and the Association is always looking for new and different ways to work with a variety of industry groups to advance the vision and mission of the Association.  MBI representatives do an excellent of representing the contractor’s point of view on issues that can have an impact on profitability and fair dealings between MBI members, owners and design professionals.
