Optometry Australia national office will be closed for one day on Friday 17 February as it relocates from Carlton to South Melbourne. The office will reopen on Monday 20 February.
The Optometry Australia website is also expected to be shut down on 17 February and reinstalled no later than 19 February. During those three days, members will not be able to access the member portal to check their CPD points or make adjustments to the member database, and no new articles will be posted on the News and Features portal.
Optometry Australia has leased office space on the first floor at 201 Clarendon Street, a modern two-level retail and office building on the corner of Clarendon and York streets. The current location at 202-204 Drummond Street in Carlton, owned by Optometry Australia, was sold in February 2016 to a private buyer. Settlement will take place in early March 2017.
Following the relocation, all telephone numbers and email addresses will remain unchanged.
Members will receive further advice closer to the relocation date and are thanked for their patience as the office moves locations. It is hoped that closing the office for only one working day will not greatly inconvenience members.
For urgent enquiries during the move on 17 February, members will be advised to contact their local State organisation offices.
