Learn. Lead. Connect.

Three words that not only represent the essence of Optometry’s Meeting®, but also the boundless opportunities to make a positive impact on your career and our profession.

LEARN. Expanded continuing education programing—starting even earlier Wednesday and ending later Sunday afternoon—means five full days of CE so you have more time to experience everything Optometry’s Meeting has to offer. This year’s program allows attendees to receive 30+ hours of accredited education from a vast selection of new and unique courses.

LEAD. Optometry’s Meeting allows every participant to make the AOA, our association, an even stronger and more effective advocate for our profession and our practices. The House of Delegates, optometry’s main governing body that has helped lead the advancement of our profession for more than a century, is open to you during public sessions on Thursday and Saturday. The AOA Board of Trustees will again host an open “Colleague to Colleague” gathering focused on immediate concerns of our member doctors, as well as the prosperous future we need to work together to create.

CONNECT. Doctors of optometry are busy people. We know it can be a challenge to fit everything into your schedule, and that’s why Optometry’s Meeting brings it all together—in one place—for you. This is your one-stop shop for meeting with industry leaders in the Exhibit Hall and connecting with your colleagues across five full days of events

AOSA President Erick Henderson joins me in inviting you to make plans now to participate in your meeting. Optometry’s Meeting is the official annual meeting of the AOA and AOSA and an exceptional member benefit. Join us in Boston to participate in ensuring the bright future of optometry!
