Get Involved

While PCB was founded as a membership-based organization, today we are an open network of peers where all with vision loss may participate in our efforts and offerings. We encourage all who are impacted by vision loss to get involved when and as you can. If at some point you wish to have a formal voice in the business and leadership of the organization, please do consider becoming a member.

Whether you decide to become a formal “member” or just join our network on your terms, you are strongly encouraged to complete our “Getting to Know You Peer Survey.” The questionnaire helps us learn about your interests and which PCB opportunities you would like to explore.

Please fill out the
Getting to Know You Peer Survey today and we’ll contact you soon.

More about Membership

Formal membership in PCB is open to any individual or organization that supports the PCB mission. The four categories of membership are: Individual Adult, Individual Junior (under 18), Non-Profit, and Corporate. Individual Adult Members, including those who belong to a specific chapter and those who are members at-large may vote, present motions, speak on the floor of the state convention, and hold a leadership position. Membership also entitles individuals to discounts offered at our annual conference. All PCB members receive our quarterly newsletter, The PCB Advocate in their preferred format.

Currently, there are two ways to become a member of PCB. When you join one of our local chapters or special interest affiliates, you automatically become a member of PCB. If you do not wish to participate in a chapter or special interest affiliate, you can join PCB as an At-large Member by paying your annual membership directly to the PCB office.

National Membership

PCB is a state affiliate of the American Council of the Blind, a national network of 67 state and special interest affiliates. As such, both adult and junior members of PCB are also members of ACB. These members receive a free accessible subscription to ACB’s monthly magazine. Adult members may also exercise their right to vote at the annual ACB Conference and Convention.
