Public Policy

The Partnership's Public Policy team engages with local, state and federal officials to create public policy that generates economic growth, business prosperity and talent development in Greater Des Moines (DSM). The Partnership provides opportunities for its Members and Investors to connect, build relationships and continue dialogue with their elected officials. Each legislative session, The Partnership hosts a Legislative Reception and Day on the Hill. Each year The Partnership leads a delegation of nearly 200 business, civic, community and local elected leaders to Washington, D.C., dubbed DMDC, to advocate with one voice — one of the largest Chamber of Commerce fly-ins in the nation.
