*THE* Opticianry Event

Let’s face it: the field of opticianry has changed. In fact, it’s in a state of continual change, with new challenges—and new opportunities—at every turn along the way.

“Dream into Action” isn’t just a colorful title. We at the OAA are embracing the present while keeping our sights set on the future. And that future will be the one we create… together. There truly is strength in numbers. “Dream into Action” is about maximizing that strength, both personally and collectively, to accomplish more than ever before.

Opticianry leaders and partners will gather from across the country for practical learning, timely updates and networking opportunities. But this conference is about more. It’s about encouragement, inspiration, unification and stretching beyond our previous limits.

We really will do some dreaming-out-loud together. And we’ll put those dreams into meaningful and measurable action.

Here is just a peek at the wide array of unique and engaging seminars, breakout sessions and group events aimed at assuring that attendees not only gain professional tools for growth but personal connections that will change the future.

(in bubbles) diversity & inclusion, national impact, innovation, state leadership, workplace leadership, Guild courses, personal growth & more
