Welcome to the Harbor Association

The Harbor Association of Industry & Commerce (HAIC) was established as a non-profit in 1975 to be a collective and impactful voice in support of the harbor business community. We seek to drive our industry forward into the future of industrial and commercial trade with efficient best practices, economically responsible solutions, and advocacy for powerful industry legislation that will advance the businesses of our members.

The heart of HAIC lies within its committees, which constantly work on behalf of our members to monitor legislation, build trusted relationships with key governmental leaders, and ensure our members have a seat at the table for important legislative discussions. Our committee members are industry thought leaders, dedicated to writing personalized resolutions and providing powerful oral testimony to align with the best interests of our members. 

We welcome members to become active on the key committees of our Association, including Government Affairs, Marketing & Communications, Programs, Development, Education, and Scholarship & Philanthropy. We also have an Events Committee to support special events such as the Harbor Cup Challenge golf tournament, our "Salute to Industry” awards banquet, and our annual legislative visit to Sacramento.
