The Harbor Association

The Harbor Association of Industry & Commerce (HAIC) was established in 1975 to be a collective voice and advocate for the harbor business community.

HAIC is a non-profit industrial and commercial trade association which serves as a united voice on trade, transportation, energy, environmental and land-use issues affecting the South Bay and harbor business communities.

The heart of HAIC is its committees which monitor legislation, provide a forum for industrial and government speakers.
