Yes. Membership in this organization establishes membership in both the National Federation of the Blind of Kentucky and in the National Federation of the Blind.
The Technology Assistance Division shall not merely be a social organization, but shall formulate programs and actively work to promote the sharing of technology related information for the blind.
Whereas a good faith effort is made to maintain a membership of blind members, it is not manditory for all members to be blind in the Technology Assistance Division. We are an inclusive organization.
The terms for all board members is one year. The Technology Assistance Division holds annual elections which take place at the National Federation of the Blind Annual State Convention.
There are six board positions: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Communications Manager and Board member.
The real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight. The real problem is the misunderstanding and lack of information that exists. If a blind person has proper training and opportunity, blindness can be reduced to a physical nuisance.
