Our management committees greatly assist in ensuring our services are led by optometrists, for optometrists. Committee members bring a range of expertise and skills to the role and provide leadership and operational insights to advance specific projects and activities, and to support the work of the secretariat.

Early Career Optometrists VictoriaEarly Career Optometrists Victoria (ECOV) enables early career optometrists to grow professionally, through the provision
of continuing professional development and networking opportunities specifically targeted to the needs of early career optometrists.

Early career optometrists are defined as students and registered optometrists who are up to ten years from graduation.
In Victoria early career optometrists face unique challenges in establishing their careers within the profession.

As one of only two states in Australia with two optometry schools, there will continue to be an increase in graduate numbers creating greater job competition within the state.

There are also specific learning and development requirements that may not necessarily be met through existing
CPD offerings as well as a risk of professional isolation due to the dispersed nature of the workforce.

Our committee members bring a range of skills and expertise to their roles, and endeavour to guide you through these
varied challenges and opportunities.
