Dearest OCOS members,
It is my distinct pleasure to serve as President of the Orange County Optometric Society for our favorite numbered year of 2020!
Thank you to the current and past board for volunteering their personal time, effort, energy and enthusiasm to making our mission a success. I want to recognize our Continuing Education Committee for making sure our education delivers material that is relevant and beneficial to us all in our daily practices. I’d also like to recognize loyal members who have hit our 10-, 20-, 30-year membership milestones! We look to continue to expand our membership and open doors to new ODs as a source of support, connection, and education.
I want to encourage new and current members to actively participate as our profession continues to face its challenges. Consider making the trip to Sacramento to talk to our elected officials on legislative day or spend an exciting day with your peers at House of Delegates and see how independent optometry governs itself. Thank you to those who have participated in the past and in the future!
We can’t forget our wonderful sponsors. Amazing companies and doctors who recognizes optometry’s importance and allowing us to function at our highest level with their generosity and services.
I am extremely grateful to be a part of such a wonderful group of optometrists, my collegues, my peers and most importantly my friends. I look forward to seeing you at our bi-monthly meetings, legislative and social events!
Millie Liu O.D., F.A.A.O.
