James Adamson is the President and CEO Idaho Association of Commerce & Industry.

An important and influential force in Idaho politics representing every facet of business and industry in the state, IACI is proud to be the association of Employers Advocating Economic Opportunity in Idaho®.
Formed by a merger of the Idaho State Chamber and the Associated Industries of Idaho, IACI’s sphere of influence grew quickly.

A few years later, IACI expanded its role by sponsoring the successful Idaho Business Week program for high school students.

The Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry (IACI) was founded in 1974. The organization was the result of a merger of the Idaho State Chamber and Associated Industries of Idaho. Later, the Idaho Potato Processors and the Idaho Safety Council partnered with the newly founded IACI.
