Committee members

Our ECO SA committee will be changing soon due to our exciting and impending amalgamation with Optometry Victoria. We anticipate that the new, combined Optometry Victoria/South Australia committee will be established prior to amalgamation on 1 July 2019, to ensure a seamless transition for this important group of members.

Jessamy Bound (OPSM Glenelg) and Rebecca Bray (OPSM Marion) also help organise the very popular annual member Quiz Night.
