The Iowa Association of Business and Industry (ABI) announced Executive Vice President Nicole Crain’s appointment to BIPAC’s board of directors on Feb. 20.

BIPAC is a national organization with a mission to advance economic prosperity by empowering private-sector employees to become pro-jobs voters and advocates through voter education, grassroots advocacy, and PAC participation. Its board serves to continue its mission through oversight and insight of its operations and initiatives.

“BIPAC’s board is a diverse group from around the country representing the broad range of American businesses,” BIPAC President and CEO Tim Riordan said in a release. “Board members play a critical role in ensuring we fulfill our mission to support and serve American businesses, their employees, and their communities. Nicole gets Iowa politics, businesses, and workers and I look forward to working with her to foster growth, innovation, and prosperity at both the federal and state levels.”

ABI has a long-standing partnership with BIPAC, led by the organization’s leadership team and Crain. The partnership helps provide Iowa employers with nonpartisan materials to explain to employees the importance of state and federal elections.

“As one of our state’s best public policy professionals and as someone who has impacted policy both in Des Moines and in Washington, DC, Nicole is perfect for this role at BIPAC,” ABI President Mike Ralston said in a release. “We are thrilled that an organization such as BIPAC, which is a national leader in bipartisan efforts to promote effective political programs, would ask Nicole to serve on its board.”
