The Utah Council of the Blind (UCB)

The Utah Council of the Blind (UCB) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1972 by a group of people who were blind who saw a need to establish programs to help people who are blind to be more independent and active in their communities. This is very important since the inclination of society is to place people in care centers when sight is lost.

The UCB Flier, October 2014

President ‘s Message
Thank you all for coming and participating in our business meeting. Welcome to our new board members and also a big shout out to Vicki Flake and Janis Stanger for continuing on in their positions of Vice President and Treasurer. I am also grateful for the countless hours of service and time and talent they have contributed to the organization.
We will soon be looking for committee chairs to head up our programs that make this organization tick. If you have any interest in serving on any of our committees, please feel free to contact me, and I will direct you to the right person. Some of our committees are Activities, Fund Raising, Technology, Community Projects, Bylaws, Nominating, etc. Please remember—many hands make light work.

We are also looking for new activity ideas that you would like to see us provide. If we do not know what you are thinking, there is no room for you to complain about the activities we do provide. Please feel free to email or call me and help me put together a list of activities for the upcoming years. One thought we have is to do away with the monthly activities and, in their place, provide quarterly larger scaled activities. I would like to see us do more field activities in the community. Once again, I need to know your thoughts.
Thank you all for making this a great organization.

Until next time,
Anna Jeffery,
UCB President
