For the last several years, MBI has been working to assist our members in solving their workforce shortage issues through the Build Iowa initiative. Part of this process has been acting as an intermediary to fulfill our members’ desire for more connection and interaction with their local school districts. 

To further our efforts in this area in 2019, MBI and Build Iowa will once again be hosting MBI members-only career fairs. In addition, we are adding a third career fair to the schedule to accommodate even more MBI members and school districts. All of the career fairs are free of charge for any MBI member to have booth space, and they will be marketed to the surrounding school districts to bring in as many potential future workers as possible.

MBI views these events as a way to continue in our mission of serving our members workforce needs, while also assisting in the establishment of long term relationships between MBI members and their local school districts.
