Promoting an enhanced quality of life and lucrative growth for commerce in the Midwest States, the Council acts as a non-partisan vehicle for businesses, academic and health institutions, as well as public and private organizations.
The Midwest Council’s mission recognizes and advocates federal public policies that are regionally and nationally affecting the prosperity of the Midwest. The Council strives to establish progressive relationships between the members and key federal policymakers, including the members of Congress and leaders of key federal agencies. As a non-partisan organization, The Council continuously nurtures collaborations with leaders on both sides of the aisle, and has won the respect of Democrats and Republicans alike.
Members of the Midwest Council derive from businesses and organizations, large and small, from throughout the midwestern states. The Midwest Council members stand for a wide variety of industries and sectors, including agriculture, energy, financial services, health care, higher education, telecommunications, and transportation.
As members work individually to increase success as leaders for their organizations, The Council works in parallel through events and forums between the Midwest and Washington, DC as a resource and channel to the lawmakers and bureaucrats who generate policies that confirm our members’ strides for economic growth.
