This conference began during 1987-88 school year. Prior to this, a proposal was brought forward to the Athletic Directors of the original members (listed below) by Mr. Larry Hinkle, Director of Athletics at Tompkins Cortland CC. The concept was approved and each A.D. received approval from his/her college president. After collaboration with other conferences already formed within Region III, Mr. Hinkle drafted MSAC by-laws. After review and minor tweaking, the by-laws were approved and officers were elected. The result was that the Mid-State Athletic Basketball Conference was officially formed. As sports were added, it became the Mid-State Athletic Conference. The original members were:

Cazenovia College Broome Community College Cayuga Community College Finger Lakes Community College Jefferson Community College Onondaga Community College Tompkins Cortland Community College

In the early 90s,SUNY Canton was added as well as Corning Community College. Note: Canton and Cazenovia College became four year colleges.

Founding President: Larry Hinkle, Tompkins Cortland Community College (1986 to 2000).
