Resource Development Commission

The Resource Development Commission is dedicated to the advancement of external funding to support the community colleges of Illinois. The Commission sponsors a statewide conference for Illinois community college resource development professionals each September. Officers are elected at the statewide conference and serve a one-year term.

The Resource Development Commission's State Funding Task Force publishes an annual report which is the only comprehensive source of information for Illinois community colleges regarding competitive grant programs at Illinois state agencies. Task Force members meet with state agency personnel each summer and publish their report each fall. All Illinois community college resource development professionals are welcome to volunteer for the Task Force.

Commission members are encouraged to join the national Council on Resource Development (, which offers a listserv, a regional conference each spring, and a national conference in Washington, D.C., each November.
