Opticians Association of Colorado

April 22, 2020 - Out of an abundance of caution and safety, the Opticians Association of Colorado has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Convention due to concerns about COVID-19. Instead we are organizing several smaller events later in the year. We apologize for the inconvenience but look forward to seeing everyone later this year at a healthier and safer time. We will keep you posted. Feel free to e-mail us with any concerns or questions you may have.
