AZOA has well over 400 members in Arizona, but we represent all the optometrists across the state. We take that role very seriously and are constantly on the watch for state or federal legislation that could impact our memberships’ profession. We’re the voice of Arizona’s optometry profession at the Arizona legislature and are continuously working with local and state government, business and political leaders to ensure the advancement and protection of our patients, members and the profession we’ve dedicated our lives to.
Legislative Updates:By Dr. Annette Hanian
The AZOA Legislation Committee is a huge committee…it includes YOU! Every AZOA member is a member of the committee. Now is your time to participate, on your own schedule. A lot of research and brainstorming goes into our committee actions long before any bill or testimony happens. The months between legislative sessions are when we do that work. Since we all have different schedules and are spread out all over the state, we keep this committee a loose structure. The committee doesn’t have regular meetings to attend or teleconferences, but we do need you to participate.Specifically, we need everyone’s input on the following:
See Something, then Say Something.
We need your experience. Send us your thoughts and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org at any time, every time so that we can compile our best arguments and build merit for our position.
We can all work together to make Optometry stronger.
The AZOA represents all ODs in AZ and that is why all ODs in AZ need to be members of the AZOA. We are stronger and more effective together.
