2020 VOA Annual Conference

2020 VOA Annual Conference
Early Bird Ends: Jul 17
Deadline: Aug 1

Due to COVID-19, the VOA leadership felt it was best to re-schedule the VOA 2020 Annual Conference from May 13-17 to August 13-16, 2020.  All registrations will be transferred to the new date automatically.  Additionally, if you've made a hotel room reservation at the Hilton Norfolk The Main, your reservation will be adjusted automatically by the hotel. There is nothing you need to do at this time.


On behalf of the Annual Conference Committee and the Virginia Optometric Association I’d like to invite you to the 118th Virginia Annual Conference, being held in Norfolk, Virginia at The Hilton Main Norfolk from August 13-16, 2020 and offering 17 hours of continuing education. This year’s conference marks a significant time in our history with unprecedented adversity.

The Virginia Optometric Association and conference committee have taken specific precautions to reduce the number of attendees in a lecture by providing two separate tracks of CE on Friday and Saturday. Each course will be provided twice on these days and will allow attendees to reduce movement by staying in their seat as our nationally recognized speakers change rooms. And while the Exhibit Hall and Friday evening Casino Night will remain, the social aspect is sure to be different.

The VOA Annual Conference Committee looks forward to welcoming you to Norfolk, Virginia!

— Richard K. Lodwick, O.D.
