If you live in an area that doesn’t have a local chapter or division, or if other factors prevent you from attending a chapter or division meeting, you can join the National Federation of the Blind as a member-at-large. While this option might not include as many networking and friendship-building opportunities, joining the NFB as a member-at-large will give you: 

  • National voting rights
  • A subscription to our monthly e-newsletter

You can become a member-at-large by filling out our member-at-large online form. You can also use this member-at-large form (Word) and mail your information and payment to us.
