Local Optometric Societies

Membership in the New York State Optometric Association includes membership with our national affiliate, the American Optometric Association, and an affiliated local optometric society. Members may choose to join the local society where they live or practice. Located throughout the state, our local society partners are a crucial element in our success.

Local societies offer opportunities for practitioners to gather and share information, expand their professional networks, discuss relevant concerns, and pursue common interests. Most societies meet on a monthly or bi-monthly basis, in addition to hosting special educational seminars and community events throughout the year.
