Iowa Catholic Conference
What We Do
Under the direction of the bishops of Iowa, we advocate for the common good in theState of Iowa and work with other groups to promote public policies that respect the human person. The ICC serves as the lobbyist in the Iowa
legislature on issues important to the Church and society. We also work to encourage people to inform their conscience and participate in the political process.
The Board of Directors is headed by the four Bishops in Iowa and includes priests, religious women, laymen, laywomen and deacons from around the state. The Board's primary activity is the approval of priorities that the
ICC Staff work on each year. The ICC Staff is based in Des Moines. They lobby at the State Capitol as well as research issues and head grassroots organizing efforts.
The ICC has five committees that research and recommend issues to the Board for the staff to work on each year. Each Committee has its own focus. These are Pro-Life, Social Concerns, Education, Family Life and Communications.
