ITCC Mission and Historical Highlights 
The International Trade Club of Chicago (ITCC) is a not-for-profit trade association based in Chicago, Illinois. Founded in 1919, the ITCC is the oldest international trade association in the United States. Members represent a broad range of manufacturing, technology and service sectors, as well as educational institutions, government agencies, and the diplomatic corps.

The Global Manufacturing Series and the Import Workshop Series are two of several ITCC programs designed to provide forums for discussion, collaboration and education to support the profession of international business management and promote the sustained and balanced growth and success of U.S. businesses as other global regions emerge and develop as both competitive threats and opportunities for trade.

The ITCC aims to

foster and expand international trade and investment;

encourage the profession of international business management on a high ethical plane;

furnish its members with a medium for exchange of experience and a forum for the discussion of problems of mutual interest;

seek by concerted action to remove barriers and obstacles which may interfere with the development of international trade and investment; and,

promote better understanding and appreciation of the significance of international trade and investment.
