URBANDALE, Aug. 5, 2014 – Dave Duncan, CEO of the Iowa Communications Alliance (“the Alliance”) announced that Kevin Condon will serve as the Alliance’s Director of Public Affairs. Condon will lead the Alliance’s state and federal advocacy initiatives, public affairs, communications, and media efforts.
“We’re pleased to have Kevin join our team. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in public policy, communications, and rural economic development.” Duncan said. “We believe Kevin will be a great advocate for the rural communications industry.”
Prior to joining the Alliance, Condon was Director of Government Relations at the Iowa Association of Business and Industry, advocating for the state’s largest business group. As part of ABI’s public policy team he was also responsible for communications, policy development, regulatory affairs and media relations. Prior to that, Condon worked for United States Senator Tom Harkin in a variety of roles on Capitol Hill in Washington DC and most recently as the Senator’s Business and Economic Development Liaison in Des Moines, IA where he became involved in many projects that received federal investment through the USDA Rural Development programs. Condon has also served as the Government Relations Representative for the National Farmers Union in Washington DC advocating for the economic and social well-being of rural Americans. Condon grew up on a farm in Webster County where his parents continue to belong to the Webster-Calhoun Cooperative Telephone Association.
“I am looking forward to this opportunity that will allow me to help the Alliance support Iowa’s companies and cooperatives that provide critical communications access to their customers and their communities. People like my parents and the area I grew up in depend upon Alliance members to stay connected. It means a great deal to me personally to be able to help further the efforts of this great organization.”
Established in 2014, the Iowa Communications Alliance is the voice of Iowa’s rural communications industry.
