The Interim Officers were Carol Cashen, Richard Behm, Brad Hughes, Jonnie Dvorak, Susan Casper, and Mike Marinetti. The first conference was held on October 22, 1986.

The organization was incorporated in the state of Wisconsin on October 7, 1988, as the Midwest College Learning Center Association, Inc. The registered agent was Carolyn Hegge. The initial Board of Directors of the new corporation were Sandra Burmeister, Martha Casazza, Carol Eckermann, Perry O-Sliwa, Phyllis Deutsch, Norma Lewis, and Patricia Touchett.
