Legislative Day

IVMA Legislative Day will begin at 7:00 am with a hearty breakfast and opening remarks at Cafe Barrata's in the Historical Building in Des Moines.  Shortly after the breakfast/orientation we will head up the hill to the Capitol to meet with legislative leaders from the House and Senate. 
Use this opportunity to become involved and show our legislators that we support the legislative process and care about issues that affect the veterinary profession. A strong contingent of veterinarians sends a powerful message to legislators.
To help make Legislative Day 2020 the most effective possible, please contact your legislators, invite them to lunch at Noon in Room 116 of the Capitol, and discuss issues of importance to the profession. 
If you need help finding your legislator, go to the Iowa Legislature website at

Legislative Day (including breakfast and lunch) is FREE for IVMA members and ISU CVM students.


Directions to the Historical Building: Take I-235 to the 6th Avenue exit, turn South. When you reach Grand, turn East. Park in the ramp at Grand and Pennsylvania. The Cafe entrance is on the north side of the Historical Building.
