A Walk Down Memory Lane
Photos from past President’s Balls, Miss Iowa Restaurant Association competitions and many other IRA events will take attendees back to the past. Guests will be able to reconnect with colleagues and friends while celebrating the association that brought them together.
As is tradition with Iowa Restaurant Association events, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be provided. Guests can enjoy a secret, signature drink in honor of the IRA red coats. In its early history, Iowa Restaurant Association members wore matching red blazers to IRA events. Therefore, we are asking guests to wear red in honor of this tradition. A $50 PAC donation per person is suggested.
“We are excited at the opportunity to honor the members and friends who have helped build the association” said IRA president and CEO Jessica Dunker. “We want to use this opportunity to thank as many people as possible for their more than 80 years of contributions!”

Intelligence practitioners have long recognized the importance of proper tasking in taking on important projects for their clients. What has often been overlooked, however, is the need to match up their KITs with analytical methods that can best support their client’s needs. In a number of key respects, pairing up analysis models and client’s needs is akin to on-line dating. Each analysis method has unique characteristics that make it better or worse meeting for the needs expressed by our clients. Practitioners need to take this relationship into account in order to optimize the other parts of their project cycles and to enhance the likelihood of delivering desired results. In this session, we’ll identify several demonstrated concepts that “turbo-charge” the matching process, identify methods that match up particularly well with KIT/KIQ types, and share some new methods that you are probably not using presently that can be useful to you and your company’s ongoing intelligence efforts.
