Dear Potential NFADB Affiliate Network Member:

Thank you for your interest in joining the NFADB Affiliate Network! NFADB is committed to creating a strong national network of families.

Affiliates are family groups that join with NFADB to collaborate on activities that improve opportunities and services for individuals who are deaf-blind. The purposes of the NFADB Affiliate Network are to:

  • Serve as a conduit for information sharing and partnership

  • Improve advocacy at national, state, and local levels

  • Influence national trends and legislation

  • Provide a platform for leadership development

  • Promote NFADB membership

    As an affiliate, you will have opportunities to:

  • Expand and increase membership

  • Promote your organization through the national network

  • Partner with other affiliate organizations

  • Receive advice regarding how to develop and promote your organization

  • Participate in planning NFADB’s next Symposium

  • Participate in NFADB webinars and other NFADB sponsored activities such as the Family-to-Family Communities Project

  • Apply for mini-grants and discounts

  • Participate in NFADB workgroups

  • Become a part of NFADB Speaker’s Bureau

    Each organization participating in the NFADB Affiliate Network appoints an Affiliate Liaison. The liaisons meet quarterly via AdobeConnect. Communication is also maintained via phone calls and email. Together, the Affiliate Liaisons develop and implement an action plan that guides our collaborative work.

    The following questions are designed to help both you and NFADB determine if the Affiliate Network is a good match for your organization. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you in person should you wish to do so while completing the application.

    On behalf of the NFADB Board, thank you for your interest in becoming part of the NFADB Affiliate Network!
