Update on the 2021 IMWCA One-Day University

We have decided to postpone the October 12 event. As an organization that focuses on member safety, we weighed all factors, including the increased cases of the delta variant, and agreed it would be best not to hold an in-person event this fall. Don’t worry, though. We will be planning some training and networking opportunities virtually this fall. Stay tuned for more information.


We offer an online training platform, NeoGov’s Learn. The Learn platform provides our members with over 300 titles for safety, human resources and other relevant topics to help local governments manage their employees.

IMWCA University

Our annual IMWCA University – formerly known as the One-Day Safety University – offers training on a broad range of topics aimed directly at Iowa’s local government employees, including safety coordinators, managers, city staff, elected officials and agents.
