Welcome to our committee page!
The NABS committees are an excellent way to contribute your ideas and have your voice heard. Participating on a committee offers the chance to develop leadership skills and get to know fellow blind students living all across the country. We are a fun group of people and encourage you to get involved. Take a look at the committees listed below and consider joining one. We would love to have you.

- Membership Committee:
The membership committee is responsible for recruiting new NABS members. This

to as many people as possible. Some of the projects the PR committee is tasked

The Mentoring Committee works to provide mentoring and leadership opportunities
to high school students entering college, and college students transitioning

is an effective means to empower and encourage, join us in designing our program.
