MASON CITY – North Iowa area economic development leaders will exchange ideas with the chairs of two key Iowa state legislative committees on Friday, April 4 in Mason City. The meeting is being organized by State Senator Amanda Ragan with the help of local business leaders, economic development experts, educators and elected officials. Blizzard canceled the February attempt to hold this event.

Senator Bill Dotzler of Waterloo, the Senate co-chair of the House-Senate Economic Development Budget Sub-Committee, will participate along with Senator Steve Sodders of State Center, the chair of the Senate Economic Growth Committee. In addition to Senator Ragan, House Majority Leader Linda Upmeyer and State Representatives Sharon Steckman and Josh Byrnes will participate.

“We want these two economic development leaders to hear firsthand about the opportunities in North Iowa” said Ragan. “We will explore the wide variety of issues that affect job growth. They include skilled job training, cultural and recreational attractions, historic preservation, and other economic incentives. The goal is learn how the State of Iowa can help our communities prosper.”

Co-sponsors of the event include North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) and the North Central Iowa Alliance (NCIA).

The event is open to the public and will take place from 2 PM to 3:30 PM on Friday, April 4, at NIACC’s Muse Norris Conference Center.
