Amazing Iowa Skilled Trades Night with Mike Rowe
The nearly 1,600 participants in our Iowa Skilled Trades night with Mike Rowe last Thursday will tell you – it was amazing! The energy in the room, the message, and the unity demonstrated as stakeholders came together was really special.  Adam Carroll did a great job emceeing the event, Governor Reynolds was spot on with her message, and of course Mike Rowe delivered as expected.  This newsletter will be dedicated to the event, we could not have asked for a better night.  Here is a nice article in BUILD Des Moines that encapsulates the evening very well. Here is a good WHO interview with Simon Conway.  And finally, here is a fresh article from the Des Moines Register from this morning.
