Handicapped Parking

 The spots are set this way by the Iowa Events Center. We were able to secure 10 parking spaces in the lower lot of Hy Vee Hall for the 2016 Session of Annual Conference. These spaces are by permit only, so if you feel you need one, please contact Dee Dee Sobotka (515) 974-8912 by Monday, May 2. As we only have 10 spaces, permits will be issued on a case by case basis. Those with the most severe mobility issues who are unable to ride in the golf carts will be given first priority. Of course, the IEC handicapped designated parking spaces will still be available. We will have one designated golf cart to pick people up in that lot.
