For State Leaders
Dear State Association Leaders ,

As the country continues to open and we begin to REBUILD, opticians nationwide are working diligently to be the best opticians they can be in the new environment. Masked, experts on sanitizing and disinfecting, navigating new rules and regulations, they are learning to understand the post Covid customer and how to best care for their eyewear needs.

How can our state associations best meet the needs of these opticians?

  • Communication
  • Education
  • Information

Things are changing every day and the opticians in your state rely on you to help them keep up with everything they need to know!

Below are a couple of great resources to share with your members!

As alway, any questions? Just reach out at d.bartlett@oaa.org

Thank you for all you do!
