Monroe St. Associates

Monroe Street Associates, Inc. is a for-profit subsidiary of the Chemical Industry Council of Illinois’ (CICI).

To augment the association's government affairs services, the CICI Board of Directors in 2007 created a private contract lobbying firm, Monroe Street Associates, Inc. (MSA).

The Board of Directors recognized the growing need to address CICI members’ legislative and regulatory concerns beyond what is provided through their traditional CICI membership. (For example: CICI-member company needs immediate help with a threatening legislative concern on an issue which doesn't impact other CICI members.)

Since being founded, Monroe Street Associates has quietly grown to include such clients as Illinois Tool Works, American Chemistry Council, Reckitt Benckiser and Citizens for Fire Safety Institute.

Some of the services provided by MSA include legislative and regulatory monitoring to the development and implementation of a full-blown lobbying/research/public relations campaign to protect and support chemical products.

MSA utilizes the broad experience and knowledge of the CICI staff. MSA services are provided at a competitive rate by government affairs professionals who have represented the industry for over 40 years.
