The Italian American Congressional Delegation[edit]

The bi-cameral and bi-partisan Italian American Congressional Delegation (IACD) is composed of nearly 200 Members of Congress: twenty-nine who trace their ancestry to Italy and more than 150 Associate IACD Members who, although not Italian American, have an interest in the Italian American Community.

The IACD is currently chaired by The Honorable Bill Pascrell (NJ-8) and The Honorable Pat Tiberi (OH-12) of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) works closely with the IACD on issues of importance to the Italian American community and to advance U.S.-Italy political, cultural and trade relations. Throughout the year, NIAF holds numerous policy forums in the U.S. Congress with the collaboration of the IACD. NIAF also coordinates meetings between visiting Italian delegations and corresponding U.S. officials.
