Groups are officially coordinated efforts to bring members of the National Federation of the Blind together around a shared interest. Groups contribute to the knowledge sharing within the movement and are intended to serve as a source of expertise and support to others within the organization. Groups are authorized by the President of the Federation and include a chairperson appointed by the President. The chairperson serves as a coordinator and is responsible for sharing the work of the group with the leadership of the organization. Groups are reviewed annually by the board to ensure that they continue to help strengthen the movement.
