The OOA’s signature event and the largest optician industry annual conference is INSIDE OPTICS®.  The coronavirus pandemic has required us to rethink how to deliver this remarkable learning, knowledge-sharing and trends showcasing opportunity.  We issued a notice of the cancellation of the in-person conference.  Those of you who have registered received notification we converted you all to the webcast. The OAC and the OOA have decided to make our National Webcast of INSIDE OPTICS, FREE OF CHARGE for all our members across the country.  You will be able to earn your CE credits  from the safety and comfort of your home. How this will look as far as live or recorded, is being reviewed. Please stay tuned. For those of you who have paid, your refund is being issued within the next two weeks. For those of you who have not previously registered, please click the link below. And... For those of you who had previously registered and cancelled, but would like to recommit, please also click the link below.
