Dr. Rick Lodwick
Annual Conference Chair

On behalf of the 117th Virginia Optometric Association Annual Conference Committee and Virginia Optometric Association I'd like to thank you for your attendance at this past weekend's conference.

We had a great time! Richmond served as a central location for our annual meeting as we returned to the Richmond Omni Downtown. Our conference kicked-off early Friday morning with breakfast followed by a full day of engaging education. New this year was a second track of interactive courses that were limited in size but not discussion. We again offered an injections lecture and workshop for those interested in expanding their scope-of-practice. The Exhibit Hall opened with “Minute to Win It” and familiar faces and new technologies as we socialized with those who support our industry. Following dinner many enjoyed the camaraderie and music at the Friday night social.

Saturday continued with early morning breakfast and lectures followed by the VOA’s business meeting. VOA members gave positive feedback on our new meeting format where there were several interactive round table discussions on topics from what our association has accomplished over the previous year with a look ahead to the future. Saturday evening we celebrated Virginia Optometry and our president Dr. Jen Weigel who served our VOA well over the past year. The night ended late with our Saturday social, drawing a close to an enjoyable day.

Sunday wrapped up the conference weekend with additional 4 hours of CE, concluding yet another spectacular Virginia conference.

Next year, we’ll see you at the Waterside at The Main Norfolk for what promises to be a once-in-lifetime event as we celebrate and educate in May of 2020! 


A special Thank You to those below who helped raise a MONUMENTAL $31,000+ for VOPAC at 2019 Annual Conference!
