Annual Program Course Packet is in the Mail

The Annual Program package for the 2013 OPS Educational Program in New Orleans is complete and in the mail! OPS members should have received it this past week. Online registration is also available now!  It has taken me (with lots of help from the BOE) at least a year to complete the program.  

I have been a member of OPS for a while now. Every July, I would received a package from the OPS for the annual program. When the package arrived, I just opened it, browsed through the courses that were being offered, and circled the courses that I wanted to take. Sometimes, it was difficult to decide which courses I wanted to sign up for because they were scheduled at the same time. I thought (and maybe other members have thought this as well), "Why can’t those courses be spread out more?”

Since I have been with the BOE for about eight years now, I have learned so much about how the program runs and how much goes into planning it every year. Here is how it works: each of the members of the BOE has a four-year term. A BOE member volunteers to be the education chair two or three years in advance for future Annual Programs.  A year before the program, the education chair begins to recruit speakers, which may be difficult with coordinating and accommodating so many different schedules.

As the education chair for this year, I am thankful that there are many people ready to help. Members of the BOE have been great in helping me schedule and recruit speakers.

This year, we have many world-renowned retina specialists scheduled to talk at the New Orleans Annual Program. Also, there are many phenomenal speakers that are OPS members. These speakers are always ready to give their time and commitment to the OPS.

By now, the Annual Program package should have arrived in your mailbox. Please take a look and plan to attend.  Also, please feel free to give suggestions to the OPS, and especially the BOE, about how we can make the meeting better. Or think about getting involved with the OPS.

Hope to see you in New Orleans at the OPS meeting!
