BCDO 2018 Annual Conference & OPTOFAIR

February 17-19, 2018

President’s Invitation

It is with great pleasure that I invite Doctors of Optometry and optometric staff to our 2018 Annual Conference & OPTOFAIR. This conference is a terrific opportunity to obtain relevant CE with renowned speakers, discuss areas of interest or concern, hear from the Association Board of Directors at the Annual General Meeting, as well as catch up with colleagues and industry partners.

The theme at this year’s OPTOFAIR is “Chinese New Year - The Year of the Dog”. Please join us in hnouring this important cultural event. Our exhibitors are excited to show you their products and services, so we thank them and our corporate sponsors for making this event possible. I also look forward to mingling with you at the "A Night in Paris" Cocktail Reception, a social event that connects doctors, optometric staff and industry partners, on Saturday evening.

See you in February 2018!

Dr. Amanda Farley, President
