AOA Elects 2020-21 Officers and Trustees via Virtual Ballot

The necessary cancellation of Optometry’s Meeting 2020 meant that many parts of the meeting had to be reconfigured virtually, including the board election and a reimagined online education experience-the AOA 2020 Virtual Learning Livecast, June 24-27. The AOA will also host its installation ceremony via webinar on Saturday, June 27.

Here is the 2020-2021 slate of officers and trustees.
