Our Chapter History

In 1975, a group of women in Normal and Champaign, Illinois became interested in beginning a new chapter. On November 3, 1975, The Normal-Champaign Chapter was
chartered.

In April, 1996 the chapter name was changed from the Normal-Champaign Chapter to The Central Illinois Chapter to accurately reflect its members and the following service
areas: Bloomington-Normal, Champaign-Urbana, Charleston, Decatur, and Springfield.
