IAEC hosts a number of meetings and conferences for our members throughout the state. These events provide excellent opportunities for suppliers and vendors to showcase their latest products and services and reach co-op decision-makers. We appreciate the support of these important partnerships that ultimately give Iowa's cooperatives more resources to better meet the needs of their member-owners.
