The Iowa Automobile Dealers Foundation for Education supports community colleges through grants and an annual meeting for automotive instructors.

Automotive Instructors Meeting

Each fall, the foundation sponsors a day for Iowa community college instructors to gather for networking and continuing education training.

The 2024 meeting will be on Friday, October 4 on the DMACC Campus in Ankeny. Registration information will be available at a later date.
