Founded in 1919, it was originally comprised the following small high schools in northern Illinois: Earlville, Hinckley, Leland, Paw Paw, Plano, Rollo, Sandwich, Shabbona, Somonauk, and Waterman. The conference is still in operation and currently consists of the following members: Earlville, Hinckley-Big Rock, Indian Creek, Kirkland Hiawatha, LaMoille, Leland, Newark, Paw Paw, Serena, and Somonauk (Earlville and Leland Coop in athletics). Over the years, there have been a number of other area schools in the conference, including Malta.

Charter members consist of Earlville, Leland, Paw Paw, Somonauk, Hinckley (now combined into Hinckley-Big Rock), Shabbona, and Waterman (which have respectively merged to form Indian Creek).
