Optometry WA’s committees

The board pulls together committees of other local and interstate Optometry Australia members with specific expertise and interests from time-to-time to ensure they and the team in the office have the best advice possible to make decisions on behalf of Optometry Western Australia. These committees are either permanent or established for the lifespan of a specific project.

Early Career Optometrists Committee

This committee drives the development and implementation of initiatives designed specifically to support our early career members who have graduated less than 10 years previously.

Education Committee

CPD may be compulsory under OBA registration standards, but Optometry Western Australia has a long-established and passionate CPD culture. The Education Committee advises the team on:

  • speakers
  • topics
  • clinical relevance
  • format
  • scheduling.

The committee also works collaboratively with other international, interstate and local CPD providers and experts to ensure that members have access to a diverse range of quality CPD right here in Western Australia.  The goal is to ensure that members can meet OBA CPD registration requirements without leaving the state by ensuring they can access quality and inspiring CPD relevant to their personal professional development goals.  The Education Committee is also responsible for pulling together our sensational WAVE conference which attracts international speakers and delegates from around the country and overseas.
