Southern Illinois Chapter 32 of IHC Collectors was formed January 18, 2003 at a meeting in Mt. Vernon, IL. There were over 80 people in attendance at this meeting, and we had 92 original members and 137 charter members by March 2003.
The organizers of our chapter were Larry Kaufman, who became our President and Gary Keister, who became our Treasurer. We have 9 board members who are elected to three year terms serving a maximum of three consecutive Terms.
We hold four meetings a year, our annual meeting being in January when we elect officers, we have a Spring meeting, Summer meeting, generally held in conjunction with our Summer Expo; and a Christmas party meeting held in December.
In four years our membership has grown to over 185 members. We encourage our members to attend local shows that feature IHC products in our chapter area. Our chapter includes all of Southern Illinois South of Interstate 70.
