Founded in New York in 1887, The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce (IACC) is an independent, private, not-for-profit US Corporation devoted to fostering trade, tourism, investments and economic cooperation between Italy and the United States.
The Chamber is a founding member of the European American Chamber of Commerce for the U.S. (EACC), is affiliated with the Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America (U.S. Chamber) and with Assocamerestero, the association of the Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad which represents more than 70 Chambers all over the world.
The rapidly changing global economy requires an extra edge in order to remain competitive. The IACC, through its membership network and the affiliation with Assocamerestero, the EACC, and the U.S. Chamber provides its members with the right business contacts and global reach.
The Chamber brings together individual entrepreneurs, as well as businesses advancing the interests of its members through contact and interaction with government agencies, trade associations and international organizations both in the United States and in Italy.
One of the Chamber’s roles is to provide assistance and training for future generations of managers and entrepreneurs. This is attained through the Young Executive Committee’s activities and also through the IACC J-1 Visa Exchange visitor program.
Today, more than ever before, women are playing a central role in the American and Italian economies. Consequently, the Chamber has created the IACC Women Forum (IACC/WF) with the mission to advance leadership across careers and cultures by connecting the most preeminent business women of significant and diverse achievement. The IACC/WF brings together business women to exchange ideas, to learn and inspire, and to promote better leadership for a changing world. The IACC/WF is committed to bettering global leadership today and cultivating the women leaders of tomorrow.
The offices of the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce are located in the landmark Crown Building at the intersection of New York prestigious Fifth Avenue and Fifty-seventh Street, right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan’s thriving business district
