West Coast Better Vision Conference in Safety Harbor was once again a great success and I have to say it was one of the best education events the Professional Opticians of Florida has ever had. Outstanding education, speakers and vendors! It was really good to once again connect with my fellow Opticians. Everyone was so gracious, supportive and understanding regarding the recent loss of my son and I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. We definitely had a blast with Opticians After Dark and hope to continue the new tradition at Summer Showcase in August.
As you know, this year marks the end of our continuing education biennium. That means it is crunch time for any Optician that hasn’t met the 20-hour continuing education requirement. The great news is that POF is providing numerous opportunities throughout the state to help you meet your CE requirements.
Our next major education event is Summer Showcase & Contact Lens Symposium 2018 which will be held August 3-5, 2018 at The Plaza Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach. Make your plans now to attend this education in an absolutely beautiful part of Florida. Registration is open now; go to www.pof.org to register.
Be sure to check out your upcoming local Chapter Education to help fulfill your education requirements. Please support your local chapters and the volunteers that make these local events happen. Your local chapters would also be extremely grateful for any help you can provide.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in Daytona Beach in August!
