      The Associate Program began in 1979 to encourage Federationists to invite the general public to help fund the programs of the National Federation of the Blind. We invite individuals or corporations to make contributions of $10 or more, which can be renewed annually. (To be a member-at-large, the individual adds $1 to the contribution.) Following are the names of participating states ranked by number of Associates and the ranked list of names of individual Federationists who have recruited thirty or more associates. Recruiters receive a colored badge ribbon based on the number of Associates recruited or the dollar amount raised and are eligible for cash prizes drawn at the National Board meeting at convention. For further information contact Tom Stevens at (573) 445-6091.
