ACBL gives Lions across the country who are blind and visually
impaired a chance to share ideas and experiences. ACBL encourages
people with low vision to become Lions and participate in service
projects in their local clubs and communities.
ACBL holds informative telephone conference call meetings on the first
Thursday of each month at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (6:00 PM Pacific). 30
to 40 people from across the country join the call each month to
discuss issues of importance to Lions, and there is usually time to
ask questions and share ways we participate in our local clubs. Calls
are held on the Zoom platform, so you can participate from any cell
phone, landline or smartphone. Watch our email list or the ACB
Community Events schedule for ways to join the calls, or call (502)
897-1472 for dial-in information.
ACB Lions hosts events at the annual conference and convention of the
American Council of the Blind. At the 2020 Virtual Conference and
Convention, one of our programs was entitled "Lessons in Leadership";
the speaker was Current International Director Shea Nickell of
Paducah, Kentucky. The program is available as a podcast; listen by
visiting www.acb.org/affiliate-acbl. ACB Lions will celebrate its 50th
anniversary at the upcoming 2021 ACB convention; program details and
schedule information will be announced soon.
