The Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP) represents, exclusively, the interests of independent companies that specialize in the production and post production of commercials in various media-film, video, digital-for advertisers and agencies. The association, with national offices in New York and Los Angeles as well as regional chapters across the country, serves as a strong collective voice for this $5 billion-plus industry. Founded in 1972, AICP assists its members by: disseminating information; representing production and post production companies within the advertising community in business circles, in labor negotiations and dealing with employment issues; and before governmental officials; developing industry standards and tools; providing professional development; and marketing American production and post production via events and awards shows. 

AICP members account for 85 percent of all domestic commercials aired nationally on all media platforms. AICP members are commercial production and post production companies (General Members) and knowledgeable, reliable suppliers (Associate Members) that the industry depends on for state of the art equipment; information; and services focused on production and post production needs.

The AICP National Board of Directors, in conjunction with Regional Board and National Committees, sets policy and the overall agenda of the AICP. With national offices in New York and Los Angeles, and with regional offices across the country, the association serves as a strong collective voice for this $5 billion-plus industry.  In 2018, AICP and AICE - the trade association for post production - merged.  AICP and AICE now function as a single association under the AICP brand, dedicated to promoting and advocating for independent production and post companies when it comes to producing brand communications for advertising agencies, advertisers, and media companies.

The Association of Music Producers (AMP) is an AICP affiliate. AMP Members are music production houses in the business of creating music and sound design for advertising, promos, and other commercial uses. AMP is a national organization formed for the purpose of addressing collectively the issues that affect each of its members individually.
