Members of Missouri Council of the Blind are vitally important in fulfilling our mission. In fact, we cannot do it without you. Also, by joining MCB you also become a full member of the American Council of the Blind.
There are three ways to become a member of MCB.
Joining a Local Affiliate
The back bone of MCB is our sixteen (16) local affiliates located in different areas of the state.
A local affiliate will provide a more personal experience. They provide friendship, fellowship and fun activities for their members. When you join a local affiliate, you are a full member of MCB.
Join One of our Special Interest Affiliates
MCB offers five (5) special interest affiliates. These affiliates provide blind and low-vision persons with a variety of ways to learn, communicate, share in a common interest, and to become more involved with our organization. These specialized interest affiliates include the Braille Revival League of Missouri, Adaptive Technology Inc. (ATI),. Library Users of Missouri, Missouri Council of Citizens with Low Vision (MCCLV), and the Missouri Guide Dog Users.
Become a Member-at-Large
If you are not ready to join a local or special interest affiliate or if there is no local affiliate near you become a member at large. Members-at-large enjoy full membership in MCB as well as ACB and are eligible to fully participate in all MCB programs and activities including serving as an officer or board member.
