Members represent Iowa on national-level committees


Twenty-five IHCA members and staff will represent IHCA members on 19 committees at the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living this year. Their participation helps ensure that Iowa members interest and concerns are part of the discussion on the national level.

Any members who have questions related to these committee areas are welcome to reach out to our IHCA committee representatives. 

Thank you to each of them for serving as IHCA members' voice in Washington D.C.
