Ten years ago Access Iowa was formed as a way for young professionals to come together and make a real difference in the place they call home. From social events to civic duties, Access Iowa strives to: “… to create an environment in the Cedar Rapids-Iowa City corridor area that attracts and retains young professionals.”

Access Iowa holds numerous events throughout the year to appeal to other young professionals and showcase what a fun and vibrant community we live in. In fact, the next event is to celebrate the grand reopening for “1st Avenue LIVE” (formerly 3rd Street Live) on Jan 16, 2009 at 8:30 PM.
