Having been a Board Member or Advisory Board Member for over a dozen years, I can attest to what a tremendous entity the Chamber is for building relationships between the City of Chicago and the State of Israel.
It is a great resource for access, knowledge and networking and a great organization for individuals to join and for companies to support.

I have been a member of the AICC for several years and was so impressed with the organization I joined the Board and was elected to a two-year term as President.
As someone who belongs to a variety of business organizations, the AICC adds a unique dimension and opportunity to tap into not only Israel’s markets and businesses but also its expertise, network and exposure to a variety of sectors and startup businesses.
It is so rewarding to see how Midwest and Israeli businesses have grown, people have made long-term connections and startups have gained exposure.
Also, the programming is targeted to matching the interests of the members with needed resources and experts in the field.

The America - Israel Chamber of Commerce and its members offer an expansive network throughout the U.S. and Israel.
This network has provided my company with a number of opportunities and introductions that have extended our reach within and outside the U.S. I would highly recommend becoming a member as a key element of your business development program.

If you're in the Midwest and seeking a place to network with people who care about your development and success – especially if you want to create a network and expand your business between the Midwest and Israel – look no further. The America - Israel Chamber of Commerce Chicago has been an incredible resource for me and my startups – not just because of the vast reach but mostly because members really care to help each other, whether through advice, connections, introductions and what not.
This is the only organization I've taken part in where a large number of members reached out to me offering introductions and help throughout the years, asking for anything in return.
On a personal note, AICC became my family after moving to Chicago from Israel. Many members have been extremely supportive of my family and I, becoming life-long friends, and I am forever grateful for the support we have received navigating through everything the Midwest has to offer, both personally and professionally.
