Over the past several months, the Public Awareness Steering Committee, in conjunction with the Board of Publications, have put together a new email list called ACB-Conversation. This is part of our effort to streamline ACB’s communications.
The new ACB-Conversation list will serve as an extension of our community, and will be a forum to have discussions on a number of subjects. The purpose of this email list is to encourage sharing of resources, information, and events sponsored by ACB and its affiliates; other events impacting the blind community; and discussion of blindness-related topics. This list is a safe space for ACB members and others in the community to connect and share information.
If you are a part of our Leadership or ACB-L lists, you will be added automatically to this new list upon its launch on Thursday, April 1, 2021. For others who would like to subscribe to this list, please send an email to [email protected]. We will approve all pending list membership applications upon the list launch. We look forward to speaking with all of you on the new ACB-Conversation list!

Be Respectful and Courteous
This is a community and all participating in it are expected to treat one another with respect and grace. Differences of opinion are welcome, but all viewpoints must be respected. All ACB lists reflect our core values – integrity and honesty, respect, collaboration, flexibility, and initiative - consistent with the spirit embodied in our code of conduct.
ACB and Blindness Related Topics Only
Discussions should be related to ACB, its affiliates, its members, and concerns of the blind and visually impaired community.
Promotion and Advertising
Promotions or fundraisers for ACB or its affiliates may be shared. Outside advertising and sales, including content in message headers and footers, is not permitted.
Forwarding Posts from Other Lists
We ask that list members refrain from routinely forwarding posts from non-ACB email lists and instead encourage individuals to share list subscription information, up to once per month, so people who would like to receive this information can get it directly.
Send Post-Related Concerns to List Administrators
Send concerns and comments to administrators for review. Information on how to contact the list administrators will be part of all message footers.
Follow List Guidelines
List administrators will issue warnings, moderated status, suspension, or removal of individuals from lists, to ensure these guidelines are upheld.
