The Iowa Association of Regional Councils is the trade association for the 17 Councils of Governments (COGs) in Iowa. Since 1988, IARC has brought leaders and communities together to promote economic growth, improve public sector services, and and solve regional issues for the future of Iowa.

IARC and the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) have collaborated to develop a Toolkit that provides a virtual resource for state associations of regional councils:
