Three new BLNs Added to the USBLN Affiliate Network since July 2017

This summer has seen landmark growth in the USBLN local Affiliate Network that spans the nation in 43 sites over 30 states! In July the USBLN added the Mid-Missouri BLN (MMBLN) which is located in the Greater Columbia, MO area spear-headed by a local business, MoreSource-Inc. in partnership with the Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council.  For more information contact:  Kat Cunningham prez@moresource-inc.com

In August the USBLN BOD approved the addition of both the Arkansas (ARBLN) and the Arizona (AZBLN) BLNs.  Arkansas is partnered with the Department of Career Education, Rehabilitation Services Division and Arizona is sponsored by Untapped Arizona.  For information about these two very active networks please reach out to:

Now that the USBLN Conference is over, connecting locally with these BLNs is a way to take to the same type of around disability inclusion education and training from Orlando and spread it across your corporate footprint. BLNs are by business and for business networks that seek to connect you to a talent pipeline, local resources and give you an opportunity to share and learn best practices.

Below is the map of all the USBLN Affiliates for your reference.  If you are seeking more information or would like a personal introduction to a BLN or a set of BLNs please contact:
