With conference attendance from across the state, wide-ranging exhibitors, and a fantastic keynote speaker (Joshua V. Barr, Esq., Director of the Civil & Human Rights Department for the City of Des Moines), it was an event to remember. Join us in April 2020 for the next Iowa International Education Conference.
