MAINE Lighthouse Chapter


Do join us on one of our monthly meetings of the Lighthouse At Large Chapter, held on the third Thursday, of each month at 7:00 PM via phone conference.

The Phone Number to call is 1-712-432-1500
Participant Code is 719394 Pound

At the beginning of each meeting, we join our voices in reciting our Federation Pledge. It is as follows:

I pledge to participate actively in the effort of the National Federation of the Blind to achieve equality, opportunity and security for the blind; to support the policies and programs of the federation; and to abide by its constitution.

Each month one or more members of our Affiliate Board is present to lead the discussion. Though our meetings are structured to cover agreed upon topics of blindness, we are always open to any imediate blindness related issue or concern of a member. Additionally, we will from time to time have invited special guests.

Another constant feature of our meetings, is to listen to and discuss the Presidential Release, a monthly report by our national leader, Doctor Marc Maurer. This report is an audio recording provided to all NFB chapters; our Federation is a closely knit organization, with communication freely flowing from and to our national office, to the state affiliate, to national and/or state divisions, and to our local chapters. (If you wish to find the current Presidential Release, here is the path to find them: Go to www.NFB.org, then go to the link entitled, Publications; from there, go to the link entitled, Audio and Video Center; from there, go to all of the NFB Presidential Releases.

Below are written summeries and a few audio recordings of past Lighthouse Chapter meetings.
