A Message from ICAD’s New President, Kate Moreland

April 13, 2020 |

Dear Investors, Clients and Partners,

This past week I officially accepted the role of President for Iowa City Area Development Group. While I am honored to move into this role permanently I recognize there are great challenges ahead for our businesses, our organization and the community at large. As ICAD’s leader, I pledge these things from our organization:

  • We acknowledge our new reality and understand there is no one size fits all solution.
  • Our team will continue to communicate timely and with transparency.
  • As an organization we will hold space for those who need support, resources and creative assistance.
  • We will be resilient as an organization and open to change.
  • We will be reliable and work tirelessly to support our businesses.

We will continue to join our partners at The Iowa City Area Business Partnership (Chamber), Downtown District, and Think Iowa City to jointly communicate and adapt to the rapidly evolving economic landscape.  The “We’re in this Together” newsletter and the www.icareatogether.com website are two valuable resources for your organization to stay informed.  Our “State of the Community” webinars every Wednesday at 2pm provide the latest information from community leaders.  If you are not receiving this information please check your junk folders or reach out to Liz Hubing at ehubing@icadgroup.com to be added.  If you prefer a text format please text ICAD at 33777 to receive updates on your mobile phone.

We are in the infancy of understanding the economic impact and recognizing a new reality.  Our community has been through challenges before and together with strong partners and great people we will be resilient and keep doing the next right thing.  Thank you for the confidence you have had in ICAD, we look forward to continuing to support our community moving forward.

In partnership,

Kate Moreland and the ICAD team
