STORM THE HILL ADVOCACY DAY

Friday, June 23

2017 Optometry's Meeting has been combined with the AOA's annual Congressional Advocacy Conference. This gives attending students and doctors the additional opportunity to participate in meetings with their representatives on "The Hill," to advocate for current federal legislative priorities. The Maryland Delegation, robust every year, will be bigger than ever with more than 15 students already signed up to join MOA leadership and Key ODs on Friday, June 23. Interested in joining the Maryland Delegation for "Storm the Hill Day" on Friday, June 23? Sign up HERE or contact Cheryl Frazier via email at cfrazier@marylandoptometry.org or by phone at 410-486-9662.  

 
 Maryland Scope Expansion & ODs on Facebook Party

 

The MOA will have a special presence at Optometry's Meeting this year. As most know, our State legislative priority has been, and continues to be, the modernization of Maryland optometry scope of practice laws. State advocacy efforts during the past Session of the Maryland General Assembly have positioned optometry well for a legislative win during the 2018 Session, but we need all hands on deck to make it happen. To this end, MOA is hosting the first of three "Series on Scope" meetings at OM on Friday, June 23 6:30-8pm. We will unveil our 2018 legislative plan at a "Maryland-style" feast - crabs, BBQ, wine, beer and more! REGISTER NOW and meet both state and national legislative warriors as we "SMASH THE CRAB MENTALITY" and rise to the TOP!!!

After our feast, join colleagues and industry partners at the always fun ODs on Facebook Party from 8-10pm.
