IPPA Committees

The Iowa Pork Producers Association has 11 different committees on which members can serve. IPPA recognizes that the future of Iowa’s pork industry depends on strong leadership from producers who are willing to step up and lead their organization. These committees provide program direction to the IPPA board of directors and staff.

The following is a listing of IPPA’s working committees:

 Environmental  Public Relations
 Iowa Pork Tent  Restaurant & Foodservice
 Membership/Leadership  Research
 Producer Education  Swine Health & Well-being
 Promotion  Youth
 Public Policy  


Each committee meets in person in Des Moines or via conference call three to four times a year. When an in-person meeting is held, mileage will be reimbursed.
