Doctor registration is now available for the 2017 WOA Convention and Annual Meeting at the Kalahari Resort and Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI! The education will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 21st and will run until 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, September 24th. The event will also feature a full Exhibit Hall on Thursday afternoon and all day Friday. In addition to the top-notch 22-hours of educational programs, Convention features many fun and engaging social opportunities for you to connect with colleagues and friends, including a Band Night with all-OD band Three Degree Shed!
To register for Convention, please complete a registration form and return it to the WOA prior to the registration deadline of September 13, 2016. You can also go to the WOA website and register online using a credit card at the following URL: https://www.woa-eyes.org/event_registration?id=37. As you will see, there are two options for registration: (1) Full Registration, which includes all education and meals (you must still check off each class and meal you plan to attend) or (2) Partial Registration, which allows you to choose courses and meals individually. If the individual courses you are taking cost more than the full registration, you should choose full registration and just check off the courses/meals you are attending. There is a substantial discount for WOA members. If you are currently not a member of the WOA, but would like to join, please contact WOA Assistant Executive Vice President Ms. Joleen Breunig at the WOA office by calling 800-678-5357 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
