In 1981, 1982, and 1983, the color and image industry exploded with new entrants. Since these consultants needed support and education, it made sense to form an image association. In 1983, that step was taken simultaneously on both the East and West Coasts by AIC and AFIC, AICI’s founding associations.
Two Become One - The Power of Vision
The Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) developed from the merger of AFIC and AIC in 1990 and chose as its description, "The premier international image association." This motto was chosen because it represented a merger of the two oldest image associations, had the largest membership, and was dedicated to being first and best.
