ABOUT MCIA

 

MCIA was established in 1979 to provide a means of bringing social and cultural events to the then small Indian community of less than 50 families. Since then, MCIA has done significant work for social and cultural development in the Bloomington-Normal community. It continues to play a large role in serving, leading and representing the Indian community.
