ACB Lions Nominating committee
The American Council of Blind Lions last held an election in 2019 at
the Rochester ACB Convention. Due to Covid and our unfamiliarity with
many aspects of virtual meetings, we were unable to hold an election
ACBL will hold its annual business meeting and election via Zoom on
