Improving the lives of Maine citizens who are blind and visually impaired since 1903
The ACB of Maine is a grassroots consumer group affiliated with the American Council of the Blind. Our purpose is to promote the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and quality of life for all the people of Maine who are blind and visually impaired.
ACB of Maine proudly holds an annual convention each fall which attracts members throughout our great state. The 2016 conference will be held on Saturday, October 22 along the banks of the Kennebec River in the great city of Waterville. Visit our Save these Dates page for complete conference information.
ACB of Maine is also proud to observe, sponsor and participate in the annual White Cane and Guide Dog Awareness Walks. These events have proven to be a great source of camaraderie, giving the blind community the opportunity to gather and share in the promotion of independent mobility and travel. 2016 events will be held on Saturday, October 15. Visit our website for more information on 2016 locations and contact info.
Members of ACB of Maine are invited to attend our monthly board meeting. We meet the first Thursday of each month by telephone conference call to discuss public advocacy, social events, and current issues involving the blind community of Maine.
ACB of Maine's annual membership fee is $10.00, and you are invited to become a part of our great organization. Contact our Treasurer, Cheryl Peabody, at (207) 872-7594 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Being blind or visually impaired can take on a life of its own, but never forget that this precious gift will always belong to no one but you. Make the best of it, and go have yourself an ACB Day!
