Major overhaul of this page on March 27, 2009

I removed all e-mail address, names, and phone numbers. And updated the addresses to those found on the organization's site. I did this for privacy reasons.

I removed all organizations with dead web addresses or no addresses. I did this because I feel that many MCS sites, inclucing this one, contained many now non existing MCS groups. We have copied them back an forth between our sites. I figure, if they have a working website they are still a valid organization. If a group is valid but has no website, I have no way to validate their information, plus, since not many of us can attend a meeting, a website is more useful to us than an address.

I added the follwoing organizations
  1. Ecologic Health Association of BC
  2. Texans for Environmental Health
  3. CFCC - of Illinios
  4. Washington State MCS Network
  5. North Arkansas Network for the Chemically Injured (NANCI)
  6. MCS Candian Source
  7. MCS-League Switzerland

    If you need me to add your MCS Organization or update info, please let me know.
