The Opticians Association of Ohio (OAO) Annual Conference & Exhibition "Spring Break" is finally here! With limited seating, the weekend will feature 12 hours of live education, all of which are approved for either NCLE, ABO and / or SCD. These lectures and workshops meet the requirements to renew your license for 2021.


The OAO will also be hosting its annual meeting and announcing the 2020 "Bud Thoma Award" winner. In addition we have special guest speakers; Pete Hanlin, Essilor, Diamond Partner; Marlene Anielski from the Ohio Vision Professionals Board; and Cesar Rodriquez, licensed optician and OAO board member from Toledo, Ohio. 


This is a live two-day event. However, we know that you may have reservations about attending a live event, so we will also offer this event via Zoom webinar. We have contacted the Ohio Vision Professionals Board and they ensure us that Zoom webinar will meet all necessary requirements. If you need your hours, we have you covered.


As a reminder, this event has reduced fees and that fee structure will be the same regardless of whether you choose live or virtual.


OAO and the Renaissance Hotel will be paying close attention to your safety! We will be following the CDC, State, and hotel guidelines to remain in compliance with all safety precautions. Here is a list of our current set of precautionary procedures:

  • Temperatures will be taken at the door
  • Six feet of social distance seating 
  • Masks must be worn when out of seat
  • Hand sanitizer will be available. 
  • Sign in and registration will all be completed through electronic devices
  • CE certificates will be completed on your smartphone, computer, iPad,  or tablet.


In addition to the education, we will have exhibitors, door prizes, raffles, and enough fun to help make up for the Spring Break we all missed!  Don't miss this opportunity to add some merriment to 2020!


We have had a lot of inquiries into this event, and seating is limited, so please reserve your spot today.
