ISPA Members,

The ISPA Board was contacted by Dr. Gary Rosberg with a special message as he stated, "During November of 2016 with the loss of the 4th and 5th law enforcement officers in Central Iowa we reached out to Chief Wingert (DMPD), Chief McCarty (Urbandale PD) and acting Chief Jim Barrett (West Des Moines PD) to see if we could help as they each lost officers in the line of duty. Those meetings were the launching pad for Impact Iowa. After meeting with leaders from Fire Departments, military, Dispatch and EMS as well as other leaders of law enforcement we established Impact Iowa as a component of our Honoring America’s Heroes program at America’s Family Coaches."

It is our sincere hope that this will be one more tool that will help our law enforcement families. Please see the invitation from Dr. Rosberg below.



We are excited to share that registration is open for our 2nd Annual Impact Iowa Marriage Getaway. Please see the attached marketing material for all the event details.

You’re invited to a 24-hour getaway titled Impact Iowa on September 28th & 29th at the new Hilton Des Moines Downtown. When surveyed, 100% of attendees of last year’s event said Impact Iowa benefited their marriage and 100% said they’d recommend it to a friend.

Here is the direct link to register for September’s event:

Due to the generosity of our donors, each couple is only responsible for a $25 registration fee. 

Barb and I and our team are committed to serving you and additional public service couples from across this great state to help sharpen your marriages by coaching on you on a variety of topics and also are committed to honoring Deputy Mark Burbridge (Pottawattamie County) and Firefighter Steve Buser (Ames Fire Department) well during this event.

Please reach out if you have any questions.

Looking forward to serve you.
