Advancing Optometry: State Advocacy Summit 2021
The AOA State Government Relations Center is proud to host the “Advancing Optometry: State Advocacy Summit 2021,” Aug. 30-31. This collaborative, virtual forum is where optometry’s advocates and volunteers can hear the latest, most successful techniques for effective grassroots advocacy and build on experiences of how to advance and protect our profession in statehouses, nationwide. 2021 has been a banner year for optometry—the first time in our profession’s history that more than one state achieved a scope expansion for contemporary optometric procedures in a single year. Now is the time to build on that momentum, learn from colleagues that have been thoroughly involved and see what it takes to effectively advocate for your patients and practice. Join us for the “Advancing Optometry: State Advocacy Summit 2021,” because our profession is shaped by the advocacy that occurs in states like yours each and every year.
