Regular Membership is restricted to the Executive Director/CEO of not-for-profit organizations or charitable organizations recognized under the laws of the United States and Canada whose primary mission is to people who are blind or visually impaired and supports the purposes and values of the Alliance. Dues are based upon annual operating expenses. This can be confirmed using your organization’s latest IRS form 990, line 18.

Associate Organizations can join as a nonprofit or for-profit organization whose primary mission is not to people who are blind or visually impaired. Examples include but are not limited to eye banks, national associations, academic institutions, or research entities. The only difference in benefits between Associates and regular VSA Members is that Associates are non-voting during our annual election. Dues are based upon annual operating expenses which can be confirmed using your organization’s latest IRS form 990, line 18.
