History of the Independent Business Association of Wisconsin
The Independent Business Association of Wisconsin (IBA) was formed over 35 years ago to speak out against pending legislation which would have impacted the bottom-line costs of businesses throughout the state of Wisconsin.
Since 1971, IBA members have remained committed to being involved in the legislative process. The organization continues to be an effective member-driven, grassroots voice in Madison, working closely with state legislators and regulators on issues that affect small and independent businesses.
Companies in manufacturing, service, distribution, consulting and the professions participate as IBA members.
A statewide, non-profit association, IBA members employ thousands of Wisconsin workers.
