IMWCA University

Ongoing training is critical to employee safety, a cornerstone of IMWCA’s mission. Our annual IMWCA University – formerly know as the One-Day Safety University – offers training on a broad range of topics aimed directly at Iowa’s local government employees: safety coordinators, managers, city staff, elected officials and agents.

We have a block of 15 rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn at a rate of $119 per night plus tax.  When reserving let the hotel know it’s for IMWCA’s One Day University.  Those rooms will be held until September 20. The unreserved rooms will be released at that time. The hotel’s direct line is (515)270-8890.
