Iowa Institute for Cooperatives





SUPPORTING IOWA’S COOPERATIVES


Cooperatives provide a proven business model that has fostered economic progress in Iowa for decades. The Iowa Institute for Cooperatives (IIC) has been lighting the way for cooperatives across the state since 1951.

Our members come from a variety of industries, including agriculture, credit unions, rural electric, rural telephone, farm credit, petroleum, and more. We develop educational and training programs for our members, provide timely news updates, and guide legislative actions that build upon the strength of the cooperative system. We also promote new cooperative development and value-added production.




ENHANCING OUR MEMBER COOPERATIVE’S SUCCESS


Mission: Enhancing our member cooperative’s success
Vision: To be the valued partner and resource for Iowa cooperatives

1. We deliver legislative and regulatory presence by identifying and proactively engaging in issues on behalf of our members’ cooperatives.
2. We are a primary platform of education and current information to enhance the cooperative’s success.
3. We provide business expertise and additional resources to ensure our member’s success.
4. We enhance the cooperative spirit through collaboration to provide services and opportunities our members cannot do individually.
