2019 OAV Super Sunday Fall Convention Update:

We are canceling the October 20, 2019 Fall Super Sunday Convention. This was an extremely difficult decision; however, due to circumstance beyond our control, this decision is in the best interest of OAV. Anyone who registered for the event will receive a full refund. If this applies to you, please send an email to oavfirstvp@gmail.com confirming your mailing address for the reimbursement. If you booked a hotel reservation, please reach out to the hotel directly to cancel your reservations at (540) 564-0200. You should do this as soon as possible. The hotel has a 48 hour cancellation policy.

OAV’s immediate focus is monitoring legislative changes and the upcoming 2020 Spring Convention at Hotel Madison Shenandoah Valley Conference Center in Harrisonburg Virginia. Please mark your calendars for Saturday April 25 & Sunday April 26, 2020. OAV will provide updates and more information in the newsletter, on the website and Facebook page. This conference will provide an entire weekend of education, information, vendors, and networking as well as updates on legislative issues. We look forward to seeing everyone in the spring!

We need all Virginia Licensed Opticians to stand together in support of our profession as advocates for the citizens health, safety and welfare in the Commonwealth.

As President, I challenge each and every one of you to reach out to your fellow opticians, students and apprentices. Ask them to become a member of OAV – the only organization that represents and advocates for Virginia Licensed Opticians. It is extremely important for Licensed Opticians to continue to stand up and fight for our rights and profession. Strong membership is important now more than ever.
