Welcome to the Website of the Association of Massachusetts Educators of Students with Visual Impairments (AMESVI). We are celebrating our 23rd year as an association of professionals who work with students with vision impairments.
Looking to join or renew your membership? Check out our membership page to learn more and to sign up!
Our mission is to improve and enrich the lives of students with visual impairments through advocacy, professional development, and the education of others, including members of the general public, regarding the unique educational needs of students with visual impairments.
The Bylaws Committee is hard at work revising AMESVI’s bylaws to come into the digital era! A special thank you to our committee members for their hard work and effort: Tim Traut-Savino, Vanessa Rosalan, Pamela Sudore, and Amy Mason.
