Youth & Family Planning Committee Meeting
January 4, 2023

When our affiliate creates events like our "Michigan's Got Talent," we score big because members are so energetic, diverse and love to have a great time. The National Federation of the Blind's Youth and Family Program Planning Committee prepares, supports and markets inclusive events that promote positive blindness philosophy, post-secondary education, career exploration, social interaction, positive skills of blindness, and employment experience. The beauty of this committee, however, is that it is not just game nights. The NFBMI Youth and Family Program Planning Committee will be hyper focused on creating content that enriches the lived experiences and employment opportunities for:

  • Blind Parents
  • Blind Students
  • Blind Children

So join us on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 at 7pm EDT to discuss these and more potential topics that we are interested in pursuing. The Zoom information is included below:

National Federation of the Blind of Michigan At Large Chapter Meeting
January 11, 2023

Virtual: NFBMI Zoom Conference Call

Theme: "Casting Your Net: Setting Goals With the Federation"
Description: Calling all At Large chapter members and blind Michiganders. The NFB of Michigan's At Large chapter is an option for those who do not have local chapters in their areas who are meeting, those who can not physically attend their regularly scheduled meetings and those who have other circumstances that prevent them from joining a chapter. The At large chapter is an information hub to update our membership on the great work that our committees are doing statewide to support members in their needs for advocacy, education, community wellness, health, and other areas of concern for blind people that we are able to effect change in. This month, we will be discussing the direction we would like our chapter to take this year and love our membership to weigh in as it is also our election year.
