Capitol Chats

Each month, we're hosting a Capitol Chat event that gives you an opportunity to hear our public policy manager and lobbyist talk about the issues you care about. This is a great chance to get expert advice, listen to special guests, and find out what’s happening at the Capitol! 
Stay tuned for details about the next event.

infoNET Stakeholder Group Meeting

We need to hear from YOU – what works and what does not!

The Iowa DD Council created infoNET to give advocates like you the tools to be successful change-makers.

Instead of another survey, we are asking you to attend our infoNET Stakeholder Group Meeting via Zoom to let us know how we are doing, what we are missing, and how we can better serve you. We hope that you can attend and let us know what works and what needs to be improved.
