It's something many of us can only dream about, seeing a president sworn into office in person.

Monday, one Siouxland man will get that chance.

Back on September 1st, Rob Hach shared the stage with President Barack Obama, introducing him to thousands at Morningside College.

Now he'll get to see the president again, not on a campaign stop but at his inauguration.

Hach is the president and founder of Anemometry Specialists, a company focused on wind energy assessment in Alta, Iowa.

The Republican supports the president and is one of eight "citizen co-chairs," invited to the inauguration.

"The re-election of the president has been huge because we've seen an up-tick on our business because of the president pushing forward," said Rob Hach, Anemometry Specialists president and founder.

With an opportunity to represent Siouxland, Hach is hopeful that the trip will have a positive impact, not only on him but on his community.

"I'm really hoping that through this trip, he'll bring attention to Northwest Iowa and even more wind development and strengthening of the rural economy," said Hach.

Besides going to the inauguration, Hach and his wife will also take part in service projects on Saturday, ride on a float in the Inaugural Parade, and attend the Inaugural Ball.

It may seem like a lot to take in, but Hach says he's keeping it all in perspective.

"If I took the time to think about it, I'd get a little bit excited, but because of my faith, I'm just at a sense of ease," said Hach.
