Federal Advocacy

The Greater Des Moines Partnership consistently engages with federal policymakers throughout the year. With input from its Investors and Members, The Partnership engages in a wide variety of policy proposals that have a direct impact on the well-being of Greater Des Moines (DSM).

Each year, The Partnership leads a broad delegation of business and community leaders from throughout the region to Washington, D.E. in an effort to engage on key federal policy proposals. Partnership Investors and Members meet with Congressional members and the Administration and attend workshops and briefings on issues of importance to the region.

The Partnership's Government Policy Council compiles a Federal Policy Agenda to allow Partnership Investors and Members to advocate as one region with one voice.
