The United States-Iran Chamber of Commerce was founded by a group of Iranian-Americans who had prominent community positions in the greater DC and Maryland area. Over time, the Chamber’s staff has included Iranian-Americans from all backgrounds and areas of expertise, including businesspersons, attorneys, and congressional employees.
The Chamber prides itself on an inclusive orientation towards the Iranian-American business community. The United States-Iran Chamber of Commerce is not affiliated with any government, receives no benefit from any government, and has no political agenda. The Chamber is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization registered in Washington, DC.
The United States-Iran Chamber of Commerce has two operational divisions. The United States-Iran Chamber of Commerce focuses on providing Chamber trade and legal expertise on Iran-related trade matters. The Iranian-American Chamber of Commerce is a separate division with a primary focus on strengthening the collective voice of the Iranian-American business community, as well as highlighting the achievements of the community in the Iranian-American Chamber’s monthly newsletter.
The Iranian-American Chamber of Commerce mission is to increase awareness of and engagement by the Iranian-American business community, in the interests of Iranian-American issues. By specializing in services commonly designated for chambers of commerce, the United States-Iran Chamber of Commerce is able to keep its focus where it counts – on the many Iranian-American entrepreneurs, professionals, academics, and businesses that contribute to the economic fabric of the United States.
