The Independent Business Association of Wisconsin (IBAW) 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, IBAW 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 IBAW members.
A statewide, non-profit association, IBAW members employ thousands of Wisconsin workers.
We have been told by our members and guests that we consistently have the best speakers and executive networking at our Business Presentation Series events.
The IBAW's mission is just as important today as it was when it first started back in the 1970's:
To advance business prosperity through insightful programming,
executive networking and member-driven public policy & advocacy.
