The Irish International Immigrant Center (IIIC) in Boston has worked closely with other Irish immigration centers throughout the United States since 1996 when the Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers (CIIC) was founded to coordinate advocacy, social services and share good practices. The Centers are located in Massachusetts, New York, California, Illinois, Maryland, Philadelphia, Washington, and Wisconsin, and the Coalition is a strong voice for the needs of Irish Immigrants, and advocate for fair and just immigration legislation for all immigrants.

On October 23 2014, Ronnie Millar, executive director of the Irish International Immigrant Center was elected vice-president of CIIC’s Board of Directors. Millar said, “I am honored to serve the wider Irish immigrant community in this capacity. There have been tremendous benefits to collaborating with the other Centers, and I am looking forward to building on that good work.
