The Chemical Industry Council of Illinois (CICI) is a state-wide business trade group that represents the interests of the chemical industry in the state of Illinois.

CICI was first founded in 1951 as the Drug and Chemical Industries Activities Committee (DACIAC) formed by 16 companies with the main objective to promote excellence in education.
