About Us

We are passionate thought-leaders, trusted advisors, advocates, and network-builders working to improve the Massachusetts economy.

Inspiring a Better State of Business

We believe that business can create a better, more prosperous world through the power of positive change. Our objective is simple—create public policy that allows employers to create jobs and economic opportunity.

We further assert that such economic opportunity must reflect the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion. Everyone must have a voice in the economic future of Massachusetts.

The Power to Empower

AIM members believe in the power of the business community to create opportunities and strengthen the communities in which we live and work. AIM member-businesses change people’s lives; create jobs, inspire innovation, empower people and mold leaders for the future.

At AIM, we’re dedicated to helping businesses of all sizes and types navigate an increasingly complex business world. From public policy advocacy to insurance, training, and HR services, we do what it to takes to help businesses prosper.

What We Do

Our History

In 1915, a group of visionary Massachusetts industrialists formed Associated Industries of Massachusetts to promote economic opportunity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. They believed that collective action by employers was the key to developing a vibrant state economy that created benefits for everyone. The world may have changed drastically since then, but AIM members still speak with a shared voice to inspire a better state of business.

The AIM Team

Our forward-looking leadership team is made up of dedicated, focused and experienced executives.  Working with each other, our board and with our member-businesses statewide, we support public policy and provide services that allow employers to create jobs and economic opportunity.
