Contacting National Student Leadership

We hope our website provides you with answers to many of your questions, and being part of our social media community will allow you to network with blind students from across the country. Additionally, you will find a listing of all of the NABS board members, their contact information, and the liaison states that they serve below. We encourage you to get in touch with us if you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding your state, region or NABS as a whole. We're always open to new ideas and suggestions. 

NABS State Liaisons

NABS has developed a State Liaison Program for our state student divisions. There are 8 groups, and each group is served by a NABS board member. State Liaisons are here to advise you on building and strengthening your division throughout the year, and we encourage you to reach out to your liaison if your are in state student leadership. 

NABS Representatives

Our national student leadership also is available upon request to support and facilitate programming for blind students on a local level. If you would like to request a national student representative for your division’s next event, please contact the NABS President at We will work with you to evaluate your needs and determine who would be best to serve in this role.
