Who is CICI?

The Chemical Industry Council of Illinois (CICI) was founded in 1951 with 16 members. At the time, the members were concerned that young people weren't pursuing careers in the sciences. When founded, CICI's primary objective was to give out education scholarships.

Today, CICI has 205 members representing over 656 facilities in Illinois. CICI members employ over 45,000 people in Illinois with an average annual wage of $112,000.

The Council consists of regular members, affiliate members and associate members. Regular members are companies which are engaged in the manufacture, blending, distribution and sale of beneficial chemicals. Trade Associations are also regular members. Affiliate members are those companies which provide transportation, equipment or supplies to the chemical industry. Associate members provide legal, environmental consulting and engineering services.
