The Harbor Association of Industry & Commerce (HAIC) was established in 1975 as the 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 the Harbor Association of Industry and Commerce committees monitor legislation, provide a forum for industrial and government speakers to address key issues, write resolutions and provide oral testimony of support or opposition which reflect the HAIC's overall position.Read about HAIC Committees
