Local chapters make up the backbone of the NFB of Virginia. If you do not live near one of our chapters, you may join the at-large chapter, or consider contacting your closest location for further guidance. If you have questions, or to update any of the listings below, you may email the affiliate president for assistance. Joining a local chapter automatically makes you a member of the national organization. Though chapters may set their own membership dues, the typical amount is $5 annually.

Given the pandemic, please contact the respective chapter presidents to confirm chapter meeting times and locations. Some chapters may still be meeting virtually.
