IHPA Board Meetings Location

IHPA Board Meetings are being held on the DMACC campus in Ankeny unless another location is specified.


Iowa Laboratory Facility

2230 S. Ankeny Blvd.

Ankeny, IA 50223


The lab is located in the Ankeny DMACC campus.  DMACC is located at the intersection of S. Ankeny Blvd. & Oralabor Rd.   Enter campus by turning onto DMACC Blvd. at the traffic light on Oralabor Rd. The lab is the second left-hand turn off of DMACC Blvd.  There’s a fairly large, grey sign which says IA Lab Facility to mark this turn.  You’ll find yourself in a pretty large parking lot in front of the building.  You’ve arrived.  It’s a big, one-story, sprawling building lined with windows, with a couple flag poles out front.  Hard to miss.


We’ll be entering the doors, marked 2240, over to the left side of the front (not down the long straight sidewalk).  I’ll have a sign out there to make this obvious.

On the map below, our meeting location is labeled as “DCI” within the Iowa Laboratory Facility.
