Get Involved! The American Association of the Deaf-Blind is the only consumer organization of, by and for deaf-blind people. If you are an individual who has both hearing and vision loss, if you have an interest in the deaf-blind community or are just curious about us, the American Association of the Deaf-Blind invites you to join our organization. For non-profit and for profit organizations, AADB also offers organization membership.
Below are some of our membership benefits:
AADB offers four classes of individual memberships.
Active memberships are offered to individuals who are deaf-blind or with vision/hearing loss and living in the United States. In addition to receiving membership benefits, each member of this class has voting privileges to all AADB's general elections and business meetings. After fulfilling the bylaws requirements, active members can run for any position on the Board of Directors.
Associate memberships are available to any United States resident who is not deaf-blind, but has a strong interest in supporting AADB. Since AADB is an consumer-driven organization, this membership does not permit voting privileges; however, each member of this class can participate in legislative activities, advocacy work, and be involved in other related activities.
International memberships are available to any individuals from other countries. While our main focus is in the United States, AADB does some networking and information sharing to individuals and organizations in other countries to enhance the lives of deaf-blind individuals in those countries. While members of this class cannot serve on the board, they can participate in other AADB activities.
The lifetime membership are available to anyone who wish to support AADB. You will receive:
(Note: Lifetime membership dues are not refundable or transferable.)
