Attend this luncheon, sponsored by CenturyLink, to learn more about how you can keep your business safe… and lunch with the FBI. Very cool. Very relevant.
Based upon recent events we thought it may be of value to provide members with an UNCLASS Threat Picture Update and allow time for a Q & A session. We’ll touch on financial crimes and other issues as well.
Our speaker will be Brian Endrizal from the FBI.

The metropolitan area with the most optimistic forecast of all for hiring this summer is the Des Moines-West Des Moines, Iowa area.
“I am not surprised at all,” says Jay Byers, chief executive officer of the Greater Des Moines Partnership. “We’ve seen a remarkable resurgence in economic activity in Greater Des Moines in the last year. We’ve celebrated a number of recent business expansions and relocations, including a $250 million reinvestment by The Principal Financial Group in its downtown campus, a $100 million expansion by Wells Fargo Mortgage at its West Des Moines campus, and Facebook’s announcement of a $1.5 billion data center in nearby Altoona. These announcements have fueled what is a palpable optimism across our region.”

Java Joe’s CoffeeHouse will open a location in DART Central Station at 620 Cherry St., the Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority (DART) announced today.
Java Joe’s will occupy a 1,372-square-foot space at the station, and will also remain open at its original location, 214 Fourth St., owner Amy Brehm said. The new Java Joe’s outlet will begin construction this month and is set to open sometime this summer, according to a DART spokesman.
Its menu will include coffee, beverages, desserts and sandwiches, and it will be open during station hours.
“We just thought it would be a good partnership with DART, since they are our main regional transit system,” Brehm said. “We just thought it would be a good partnership to get our good products over there for all their customers.”
DART included the space when it built the station to open the possibility of housing some kind of food and beverage retailer. DART Central Station opened in November 2012.

“The Belin Quartet is an admired and talented group of musicians, and the Downtown Chamber is excited to be able to partner with the Civic Music Association to highlight a piece of the arts and culture scene downtown through this unique networking event,” stated Kevin Tiernan, Downtown Chamber President, “Strings on the Street encourages business professionals to enjoy a mix of culture, lunch, and networking in Downtown Des Moines.”
