2023 Annual Dinner Details

A record-setting 140 attendees joined us for our Annual Dinner at the West Des Moines Marriott on April 20! Frank Kelly gave a thought-provoking keynote about global political happenings and shared personal stories from his time working with former Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush. Many attendees stayed after the keynote to enjoy extra social and networking time, and everyone was thrilled with their new YETI mugs compliments of our Title Sponsor, Monarch Private Capital!
