The Inter-Society Color Council 

The ISCC was created in 1931 to advance the understanding and application of visual color as it relates to science, art and industry. Each of these fields enriches the others, furthering the overall objective of the organization - color education for professionals and for the public-at-large.

The ISCC is the principal professional society in the field of color in the United States. Other national organizations with an interest in color are Member-Bodies of the Council; additionally, individuals can join when unaffiliated with any particular organization. Individual members are the largest single group.

The Inter-Societiy Color Council is the US representative organization to the International Color Association (AIC).

Information about ISCC is available on the ISCC website.
