AFFILIATES

The 16 Local Affiliates and 5 Special Interest Affiliates of MCB play a critical role in supporting the blind community across the state. Working in close collaboration with our Affiliates, MCB is committed to providing the tools, learning experiences, and networking that enable our members to achieve better employment, rehabilitation, education, transportation, recreation and equal access for blind and visually impaired people.
Please feel free to attend any Affiliate meeting that interests you. If you are interested in starting a Local Affiliate in your area, contact the MCB office at 800-342-5632 for more information.

Notice: Affiliates that are having meetings are doing so virtually via Zoom, anyone interested in attending a meeting should contact the person listed under the affiliate for the relevant meeting link.
