Thank you for visiting the NCCC Southern Illinois Chapter webpage. We are currently working on generating membership and planning for future events in the Southern Illinois area. Our membership goal is to grow our chapter to 50 members strong by July 2013. Please email Franciene Sabens if you are interested in joining the chapter, or helping in any way.
