Become part of the affiliate that roars


Carla Ruschival
 

There's still time to join the American Council of Blind Lions and be
part of the affiliate that roars.

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).
Approximately 20 people from across the country join the call each
month to discuss issues of importance to Lions, and there is always
time to ask questions and share ideas and ways we participate in our
local clubs. The conference call number is 712-432-3900, and the call
code is 796096.

In 2020, ACBL will again support the American Council of the Blind
scholarship program. As a sponsor, ACBL will assist outstanding
students to attend the 59th ACB National Conference and Convention in
Schaumburg, IL where they can learn about our outstanding
organization, connect with others in their chosen fields of study, and
discover the many opportunities available to them as they seek to
become successful members of society. Support for this project comes
from contributions from local clubs, from individual Lions, and from
the ACBL treasury.

ACBL will once again host our lunch, program and meeting and our
Milly's Place Mixer at the ACB convention. More details will be
available on our monthly conference calls and in the convention
pre-registration.

If you are already a Lion, have been a Lion in the past, or would like
to become a Lion, you are invited to be part of ACBL. Membership is
open to people who are blind, visually impaired or sighted. One-year
membership is just $15.00; life membership is $150.00.
