Who Can Join the NOPBC?

Parents, relatives, educators, blind adults, and others interested in promoting opportunities for blind children may join. Local parent support groups are also invited to affiliate with the NOPBC. Although membership is open to non-parents, the control and focus of NOPBC remains with parents.

NOPBC membership fee is $15, and membership in the NOPBC will continue through December 31, 2022, no matter when an individual joins.  

NOPBC membership fee is $15. Benefits of NOPBC membership include:

  • Free Freedom Scientific Software
    • Freedom Scientific will provide each NOPBC member a free annual home license for JAWS, Fusion, or Zoomtext. This free license (worth $85-170, depending on software chosen) is exclusive to NOPBC members. You will receive a link for access to the software shortly after your membership is verified.
    • Please note that the free software license is only available tp individuals in the United States.
  • Early Access to NOPBC Resources
    • NOPBC members will receive announcements and new resources before they are released to the general public.
  • We are moving to a calendar year membership, so all new memberships will be in force through December 31, 2022. That's right, if you join now, you'll get more than 12 months of NOPBC membership for the membership fee of $15.
