Get Involved / How To Join TCB
Though the majority of members are blind or visually impaired, sighted persons who share the common goals of TCB are welcome to join. Each individual chapter sets local chapter dues. Individuals who do not live near a local chapter may join as a member-at-large. Another membership category for any individual, business, or organization (public, private, or civic), having a special interest in services for persons who are blind or visually impaired, is sustaining/supporting membership.
TCB Annual dues are $10.00 which includes membership in American Council of the Blind. The local state chapters have their own membership structure, check with the chapter for their membership fee. If you would like to help the council, but do not have the time, sustaining membership is a viable way for individuals, businesses, and organizations to demonstrate their support for the council and its mission. Sustaining dues are $200.00 per year.
