Iowa Association of Business and Industry (ABI)

ABI is a broad-based organization of Iowa businesses working together to promote Iowa commerce.


The philosophy behind this expanded organization is simple: there is strength in numbers. By including more and more diverse Iowa businesses, ABI is able to play an even more active role in shaping Iowa’s future.  Uniting around the key issues, which all businesses have in common provide ABI, and each ABI member, with a strong voice for change and progress in Iowa. Today, ABI represents a diverse group of businesses, including manufacturers, processors, retailers, insurance companies, financial institutions, publishers and printers, transportation services and the professions. Large or small, urban or rural, each member business adds its own particular resources and expertise to the growing strength of the Iowa business community; and, in turn, each receives the many benefits ABI membership provides.
