National president Andrew Harris (L) and treasurer Gavin O’Callaghan with a design concept for Optometry Australia’s launch to members and stakeholders
Members remain core to Optometry Australia and the organisation remains committed to providing maximum membership value through its sharpened focus on the sector.
State Office CEOs are united in the resolution that the change to becoming a profession-centric member organisation will provide an influential, united voice for optometrists that will result in a stronger profession and a more rewarding future for all.
In delivering this refocus, the current structure will not change.
The State Offices will continue to provide a range of exclusive core membership services while the national organisation will maintain its focus on the co-ordination and delivery of national services that benefit all members.
Members will continue to be provided with the best whole-of-career professional indemnity insurance policy, regardless of where they work.
Members will also continue to benefit from access to confidential and accurate clinical and professional advice as well as value-for-money professional development opportunities, networking, and career-advancing opportunities developed for optometrists by optometrists.
