Lead ON

Leadership Optometry Network

The COA is seeking nominations for our 2017 Lead ON class. Do you know someone who would be a great leader for optometry in our state? Or are you an optometrist interested in learning more about the COA and the legislative process?

In order to ensure the future of the profession is in great hands, the COA has developed a long-standing program to identify, educate, and engage young optometrists. Lead ON: Leadership Optometry Network will provide a structured format for members to learn the history of the profession, the inner workings of the association, and to develop their personal leadership skills that will enable them to be stronger leaders not only in the COA but in their communities and practice. The program consists of attendees visiting a State Board of Optometry meeting, spending a day at the Capitol meeting with Legislators, and a retreat to Peaceful Valley Ranch.

The future of the profession depends on YOU! Please help us to identify and encourage our future leaders. An email with a nomination and application form will be coming soon.
