The League has partnered with the Iowa Employment Conference for a number of years and helped promote it through our various communication channels. We have done so because it provides an excellent educational opportunity for our members as it offers a wide variety of classes and speakers that cover broad human resources issues as well as training specifically designed for governmental entities. The conference is one of the few, if not only, events in our state that focuses entirely on employment laws and human resources guidance for city officials. This makes it a great training opportunity for city managers, city attorneys, human resource professionals, supervisors and even elected officials.
Beyond that, the League has appreciated the opportunity to have an exhibit booth space each year at the conference that we have assigned to the Iowa Municipalities Workers’ Compensation Association. They have utilized that opportunity to connect with members and meet other city officials, which our staff has always found beneficial.
The IEC is a great opportunity to gain valuable workplace knowledge and connect with key decision makers. We sponsor, exhibit and have a speaker each spring and fall and have gotten new business as a result. It is well worth the time and investment!
The main reason to attend the Iowa Employment Conference as a vendor is definitely the networking!
The Iowa Employment Conference is an incredibly valuable resource for networking and knowledge sharing for non-profit, corporate and local government attendees. The topics are timely and responsive to current workplace challenges and allow the opportunity to interact directly with subject matter experts who can help! Thank you Nan and team for all you do to make this possible!

You really have to weigh the opportunity to just get out in front of some people and at the same time have some good conversations. Every year we go back and re-evaluate: did we get a good return on our investment for this and every year we say YES WE DID!
The conference was great! As an exhibitor there was plenty of enthusiasm behind the sponsors and the event as a whole. We will be back next year.
The Iowa Employment Conference is the best conference we participate in year after year. It is a great opportunity to meet a number of existing clients as well as prospective ones over a 2 day period. Nan and her planning committee cover every detail and make our sponsorship a “no-brainer” in terms of exposure and quality networking opportunities. Plus, it’s always a fun time and they do a great job encouraging attendees to interact with the vendors. We look forward to it every year.
I’ve attended the Iowa Employment conference for over ten years. Every year it continues to get better. The presenters are top-notch and the ability to network with peers is unequaled.
