The mission of the Tri State Alliance is to convene the region’s leaders to address issues that affect commerce so that the quality of life is improved for the region of northern Illinois, northeastern Iowa, and southwestern Wisconsin.
The region includes three major cities as anchors—Dubuque, Iowa, Janesville, Wis., and Rockford. All the counties, cities and villages between these three cities are part of the planning area. Advocacy for infrastructure planning is key to a region’s ability to participate in the ever-growing global supply chain for goods and services.
