Benefits of Membership:

 Organization-wide Membership.
Once your organization has joined the Midwest Council, every employee of the organization will have access to membership benefits. You are not limited to only one or a select group of employees.


Midwest Council members are invited to attend all Council programs and events, and to send as many employees from your organization as you would like. Council members have the opportunity to meet in small group settings with members of the Midwest Congressional Delegation at our breakfast meetings featuring nationally-known political figures.


 Networking Opportunities.
In addition to presentations by members of Congress and other distinguished speakers, Midwest Council events also offer members excellent networking opportunities. In addition, Midwest Council staff work to connect members with similar interests and goals so that they can build relationships and work collaboratively on issues of shared concern.


 Annual Washington Meeting.
All members receive an invitation to the Midwest Council’s Annual Washington meeting. Generally held in the spring when Congress is in session, the two-day meeting includes a briefing at the White House, a reception with the region’s Congressional delegation, and a breakfast featuring remarks by two members of Congress, as well as other opportunities to meet with various members of Congress and their staffs.


 Policy Committees.
The Midwest Council encourages members to participate in one or more of our Policy Committees, during which members develop positions for consideration by the Board of Directors on issues of most importance to the region’s economy.
 Special Projects.
The Midwest Council often undertakes special projects and initiatives focused on a wide range of issues that impact the region’s economy. These projects are often identified and recommended by our members, who then take an active role in the development and implementation of these initiatives.
