AAI encourages visibility and networking between members. To do this, we offer great deals on advertising in our annual directory and website.
We also hold various casual events that allow members to discuss issues in the ag industry and get to know each other. To find details on sponsoring these events, please contact the AAI office.
Four Annual Golf Events
Each year AAI host 5 golfing events. AAI members gather at multiple golf events across the state to network and entertain customers and guests.
These golf outings are a great opportunity for you to meet new and longtime members and expand your business. The scheduled golf outings are throughout the summer and all over the state, and we invite you to be a part of it!
AAI Annual Meeting
The All Members Annual Meeting is hosted on the first day the Agribusiness Showcase & Conference. All members are invited to attend the Annual Meeting. AAI discusses accomplishments in the past year and new opportunities to come. See the Showcase website for full details.
The Political Action Committee (PAC) PAC is a valuable resource that enables AAI members to support the candidates and legislators who support ag business and a positive agriculture environment in our state. As a supporter to the IA-PAC, you are directly involved in the elections process and contributor to the success of AAI.
2017 will be the 4th annual career day hosted by the Agribusiness Association of Iowa (AAI) Foundation. The AAI Foundation partners with the Agribusiness Showcase & Conference to bring the college students close to industry professionals and learning opportunities.
AAI represents a sector of the ag industry at Iowa District Meetings.
The Agribusiness Showcase and Conference is about giving attendees the opportunity to explore the innovative tools they need to grow their business, now and into the future. The industry’s innovation and technology will be showcased through featured speakers, presentations, and exhibitors. Workshops and exhibits pertain to everyone in the industry – agribusiness senior management, Certified Crop Advisers, grain professionals, pesticide applicators, and more.
The Membership Directory is an “agribusiness encyclopedia” of information that is distributed to our membership every spring. Members tell us repeatedly that they use it almost every day because it is filled with the kind of reference material they need to effectively operate their businesses. Or convenient listing format makes it easy to use and a fast daily reference for industry contacts, government information, and fellow members.
