Congratulations! You’ve welcomed a new member into your chapter of the National Federation of the Blind! We believe in connecting with and mentoring members as they begin their journey with the Federation. To that end, this form is to collect information on each new member and to begin the orientation process. Each individual submitted will be sent a series of welcome emails by Federation leaders with speech recommendations to assist in orientation. In addition, they will receive, by mail, a welcome packet containing a membership coin, a certificate of membership, and other Federation information.
Please have an NFB representative from your chapter or affiliate complete this form after the new member has been voted in, welcomed to the organization, and has paid their membership dues. If you have questions, please contact us at [email protected]. Please note that a new member is considered to be anyone who has never held a membership with the National Federation of the Blind or those who are renewing.
A great opportunity for new members or other prospective members is our Open House Gathering Calls to hear about membership, philosophy, and purpose. Invite interested parties to our upcoming open house that is scheduled for Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. eastern. Register interested perspective members through the Open House Gathering Call Registration or send the registration form to interested people. Thank you for your commitment to the organized blind movement.
