Italy-America Chamber of Commerce
Who we are and what we do:
The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary American independent self sustaining membership organization devoted to fostering in every way possible business relations between Italy and the United States.
Members include firms and individual who have trade, business, or professional relationship with Italy. Among them are importers, , exporters, agents of Italian firms trading here, United States firms with subsidiaries or business in Italy, banks, shipping lines, airlines and tour operators, freight forwarders, insurance companies, law firms and individual attorneys, CPA firms and advertising and public relations firms, and other businesses.
How we are organized:
According to the provisions of the Chamber’s bylaws, members elect annually a Board of Directors whose members serve without pay. The Board determines policy, elects the Chamber’s President from among Board members, and chooses an Executive Committee to guide the implementation of policy set by the Board.
The Board of Directors may employ a Secretary General who reports directly to the President. He advises, makes recommendations to, and assists in formulating policies for the Board of Directors and has general charge of the day to day affairs. The Executive Secretary may represent the organization to the public.
How we serve our members:
An important part of the Chamber’s work is to provide help to individual members. A phone call, a letter or email enslists the aid of our staff in providing information on local business rules, statistics, marketing, publicity, sales, trade associations, financial data, transportation rates, tariffs, taxes, and much more.
