Biographical History

The American Association of Industrial Editors was formed in 1938 by a small group of editors of industrial publications and house organs, who saw their mission as increasing professionalism among editors, improving quality of publications and serving management. Within a few months the fledgling organization had members from 17 states and by 1939 they began publishing the Editor's Notebook, aimed at editors of industrial and corporate magazines. In 1941 AAIE became one of several charter members of the National Council of Industrial Editors Association (NCIEA), which later became the International Council of Industrial Editors (ICIE). AAIE withdrew from ICIE in 1946 over policy differences but the two organizations merged again in 1970, becoming the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).
