The board of the Greater Des Moines Partnership has been voted by Business Record readers as the most influential board in Greater Des Moines for the third year in a row.

The Partnership topped the annual list of Top 25 Most Influential Boards, which appears in the 2017 Book of Lists.

The online survey of Business Record readers, which was conducted in the summer of 2016, asked participants which board they believe is the most influential and asked them to pick nine other boards that they also perceived to be influential.

The votes were tallied and IP addresses were analyzed, much as we do for Best of Des Moines, to remove suspicious voting and obvious attempts to fraudulently influence rankings.

The Business Record also released its list of the Top 25 Most Influential Business Leaders. See the list here
