PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

September 2019

Summer Showcase in Daytona was a huge success, with fantastic education and some fun mixed in as well. We had such a great turnout for Opticians After Dark, sponsored by Essilor and featuring DJ Vince Cottone. It was a blast and everyone who attended had a fun, relaxing evening.

Next up in November is Vision Preview at an all new and exciting venue, ‘The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort. This resort is sure to please everyone. We will have over 50 hours of education throughout the weekend, and of course there will be a happy hour and another fun filled Opticians After Dark. See you there!

Opticians for Better Vision

2019 Donation Goal

Donate Today!

For many years, the Professional Opticians of Florida have had a retained, registered, professional lobbyist working on your behalf in the halls of the Florida Capitol.  POF has the only representation in the House and Senate working on behalf of you and all Florida Opticians.  I am so fortunate to have been that person in the "halls" for you since 1989.  Some of you may remember our efforts to kill the deregulation of your profession by eliminating your license  years ago, and, happily, POF was successful.

Participation in the election process requires money, period.  Your contributions to Opticians for Better Vision, your political committee, go directly to candidate campaigns.  There are no fewer than 140 races for Florida legislative races every other year...it just never ends.  Florida contribution limits per cycle are $1,000 per candidate.  So you can understand the continuing need for support for your professional political activity...both individually and as a membership, trade association working on your behalf.

Please make this commitment today.  It is important to protect what you worked so hard to achieve!!

Respectfully, 

Nancy Black Stewart
