It was great to see everyone at Vision Preview in Fort Lauderdale … what an outstanding event! As always, the education was top notch, vendor support was phenomenal, and I thank all of you and all of our vendors for the continued support. Judy Lew, Glenn Battinger and Essilor sponsored one of the best events of the weekend, ‘Opticians After Dark,’ the brainchild of Dee Pace. This super fun Opticians get-together has become the premier after-hours event!
The Florida Board of Opticianry held a very well attended meeting on Friday and those in attendance received two hours of laws and rules continuing education credit. To say the board meeting was interesting is an extreme understatement!
The next education event will be our Spring Spectacle, February 28 - March 1, 2020 at The Island by Hotel RL in Fort Walton Beach, FL. Earn all 20 required hours of education from highly respected practitioners and recognized industry leaders. You can look forward to more great education and choose the topics and the schedule that fits your needs. Check out the details and be sure to register early at www.POF.org
