President's  Message    

December 2017      

At the end of October, Professional Opticians of Florida wrapped up another great event, Vision Preview 2017, at the Doubletree by Hilton Miami Airport & Convention Center.  It was an outstanding event with education provided by some of the best instructors in the nation. Many attendees received all of the required continuing education for this biennium. With Caroline Miller and Dr. Katherine Latimore leading the course, POF presented the 32-hour Apprentice Contact Lens Certificate program. The course was a huge success with the help of volunteers Don Young, Wes Stuart, Atala Valdes and Juan Carlos Moreno.

Be sure to check out upcoming local chapter events to help fulfill your education requirements.

Chapter Education. 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.

Our next major education event will be Spring Spectacle in Fort Walton Beach, held at the Ramada Plaza Beach Resort at Destin West, 1500 Miracle Strip Pkwy SE, Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Make your plans and reservations now to attend this education in an absolutely beautiful part of Florida.

I wish everyone a safe and Happy Holiday Season!!
