President's Message


Dear Kith and Kin:

Our bylaws, which were adopted in 1995, and amended in 2001 and 2005, underwent extensive revisions by our Second Vice President, Leslie Clumb, so as to reflect the manner in which we actually operate, and, following a thorough review by our Board of Directors, and with the unanimous approval of our General Membership, the revised bylaws of the Nationalities Council of Indiana were adopted on Monday, September 12, 2016.

The Nationalities Council of Indiana has worked to increase the visibility of, and participation by, ethnic groups in the community life of central Indiana for more than thirty-nine (39) years, and the NCI will host the 40th Annual Indy International Festival in the Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, Thursday through Saturday, November 10-12, 2016.
