Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

AFB Center on Vision Loss Board Members

Our voluntary board supports the staff in their efforts to make the Center a place where thousands find hope each year. They meet four times per year formally, but the work of the board goes on every day through community involvement and committee work. The board is responsible for helping the Center to grow and thrive.
