At-large Membership

The at-large membership is for individuals wishing to join the organization and are either not located near a city with a local chapter, or do not wish to affiliate with a local chapter.  All at-large members are afforded the same privileges as chapter members and are able to receive any published periodicals, hold office, hold organizational voting privileges, and serve on boards and committees.

Chapter Membership

Chapter memberships afford individuals the opportunity to learn, network and share common experiences.  In addition, belonging to a chapter allows individuals to advocate for improved services for the blind and visually impaired citizens within their community.

Life Membership

Nebraska's Life Memberships are at-large and can be paid in three (3) annual installments, plus chapter dues if applicable.
