Membership does have its privileges. In fact, AZOA membership provides more for practicing optometrists in Arizona than most other states. If you’re not convinced, take a look at the long list of member benefits and you will be. Bottom line, the fastest way to expand your knowledge, extend your network and build your practice is to become a member of AZOA. For questions regarding pro-rated dues (if joining later in the year) please contact JoAnne at firstname.lastname@example.org or 602-279-0055
