Announcing SPVC and SPVAN

The former Sports Vision Section (SVS) has recently become the Sports & Performance Vision Committee (SPVC) and is now part of AOA's advocacy group. This transition allows SPVC to work more efficiently with other AOA committees, staff, membership and affiliate organizations.

While most Sports & Performance Vision resources and materials were only available to SVS members, SPVC will have more access to AOA resources and will now be able to provide all AOA members with Sports & Performance Vision (SPV) information, resources and tools at no extra cost.* This change will also allow SPVC to coordinate Sports and Performance Vision advocacy efforts with other AOA committees, such as Federal Relations Committee, State Government Relations Committee, and Third Party Center.  

For former SVS members and AOA members interested in Sports & Performance Vision, the AOA will be forming the Sports & Performance Vision Advocacy Network (SPVAN). This network will help SPVC inform interested AOA members of Sports & Performance Vision updates, as well as allow AOA members to become more involved in development of AOA's Sports & Performance Vision specific resources and advocacy efforts. By completing the following survey and joining SPVAN, SPVC will be able to identify advocacy opportunities which you can be involved in.

*Most Sports & Performance Vision materials will be free. However, the AOA may develop more extensive reference materials--such as brochures, books and guides--for a low cost to members at AOA Marketplace.
