How ICP Works

ICP is an alliance of trade associations.  Each association’s membership is comprised of industrial distribution companies struggling to find their next generation of employees. 

Together, these associations—as ICP Alliance Partners—drive the programs that will build awareness of the careers available in industrial distribution.

We recognize that our members and constituents face similar problems with hiring, training and developing employees. We are committed to working together to ensure the continued success of our members and the distribution channel.
 
Representatives from member companies and the staff of each association serve on the ICP Steering Committee.
