About Presidents' Council

As developed and approved by Presidents' Council attendees, the mission of Presidents' Council is as follows:

  • It should be an exchange of state information, especially what works and doesn't work in the legislative arena.
  • It should foster leadership development and orientation to the AOA for affiliates.
  • It should provide an opportunity for networking among the state leaders.
  • It should be a forum for input to AOA, not act as a policy making body.
  • It should enhance the effectiveness of volunteer leaders with resources that help them advance the profession.

Presidents' Council typically meets every January for a day and a half, usually all day on Friday and half of Saturday (arrivals Thursday afternoon or evening).  It also typically meets the Wednesday morning before Optometry's Meeting® in June.
