Member of the Month

Missouri Council of the Blind is initiating a Member of the Month program to recognize those who have given of themselves and have made a difference in their community or assisting the blind. Each month the Member of the Month Committee will select an individual from those nominated by any member of MCB. Now is the time to show appreciation for someone who has been an inspiration or has done something special. We will present an award this month so spread the word and send nominations by March 31, 2009.

  2. Nominee may be visually impaired or sighted.
  3. A blind member may be nominated for service to the blind or for service to their community even if it does not affect the visually impaired.
  4. A sighted member must make a positive contribution in assisting the blind.
  5. Monthly nominations will be held over for later consideration.
  6. The MCB Member of the Month Committee will select the recipients.
