Five directors were elected for two-year terms on the KCB Board at the recent KCB 50 Golden Years convention.
Directors may serve two two-year terms. Elaine Weisbard (Louisville), Birchell "Cisco" Slusher (Covington), and Natalie Beyers (Louisville) were elected to second terms as directors.
Patti Cox and Debbie Deatherage, both of Louisville, rotated off the Board, as they had both completed two consecutive terms as directors. Thanks to both of them for their service to KCB.
Joining the Board for the next two years are Shirley Stivers of Bellevue and Amanda Selm of Louisville. Welcome to both Shirley and Amanda.
The Kentucky Council of the Blind is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) membership organization. We are not a state agency. We have no paid staff. We are blind, visually impaired, and sighted volunteers who are dedicated to helping others with low vision to lead fuller, more independent lives.
KCB supports issues that touch all blind and visually impaired people. We advocate for quality education for blind children and youth, expanded training and job opportunities for visually impaired adults, improved services for seniors over age 60 who are just losing their vision, and better public transportation for people who cannot drive. We support Medicare coverage of durable equipment needed by people with low vision; paper money that can be identified by touch; talking prescription labels; more audio described movies and TV shows; and more affordable and easier-to-use technology for people who have low vision.
