With the New Year come some new changes to DCOS membership and fee schedules. In order to be consistent with AOA and TOA bylaws, the TOA will be collecting our membership dues on your 2016 statements. The membership dues for all societies is $24.00; however not all societies offer the same services and have the same costs. Therefore the individual societies were recommended that they collect appropriate meeting fees to meet their budgetary needs.
We encourage all optometrists to join DCOS, TOA, and AOA and become members. Together, we strengthen our voice and protect our ability to serve our patient’s needs. This dedication to our profession does not come without responsibility. We know that our members incur more costs than those who choose not to join our state and national associations. Therefore, we will be offering members a reduced meeting fee than those who are not members. Members of DCOS, TOA, and AOA will be assessed an annual meeting fee of $100. Those who are not members will be assessed an annual meeting fee of $200. This represents no change in dues for our members from last year. If you’re not a TOA member please take the time to join.
Due to new state regulations, sponsored meetings have and will continue to become more challenging to obtain. In order to obtain to provide the quality CE that our society has come to expect, we must promptly collect our dues in order to budget our meeting costs throughout the year. We encourage all members to register today to allow our society to provide the best meetings possible. With that, we will also assess a $50 late fee for members who have not paid by March 31, 2016. So please take the time to register today.
