Each council is intended to be a working group comprised of individuals who have experience and understanding to conduct outreach and develop the work. There are opportunities for CEO’s, directors, and other leaders who are given the time to tackle issues and partner with Greater IC staff to facilitate the programs.
We collaborate with the business community, local stakeholders, and regional partners to develop our yearly policy agenda to create a unified voice for the region. We are a non-partisan organization that does not endorse or donate to political candidates. We support First Amendment rights for all people and encourage elected officials, candidates, and citizens to be civil during discussions and debates on policy issues and when expressing political opinions. We are committed to leading by example.
The Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance and Greater Iowa City, Inc. annually recommend and support positions on key policy issues affecting our region and state’s economic growth. These recommendations are made with significant input from our combined 2,000 members, investors, partners, and community stakeholders.
We have teamed up with the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business to bring you this special leadership program!
Through four day-long sessions, participants experience an immersive deep-dive into today’s most pressing leadership challenges and learn tools to successfully lead and grow their business. Each session is facilitated by an engaging expert affiliated with the Tippie Leadership Collaborative.
