Every two years, the members of the RIOA convene to swear in its Leadership and Board of Directors.  This year, as in years past, we will also take a moment to recognize RIOA members who have made a direct and lasting impact on the profession, eye care in Rhode Island and our Association.

The RIOA is pleased to announce that AOA Trustee Dr. Jacqueline Bowen of Colorado willbe on hand to swear in our officers. 
Every two years the Rhode Island Optometric Association convenes to install its officers and hear directly from our leaders. We do so at an event called, the "Installation and Awards Reception."

This year's reception will take place immediately following Saturday's Nose to the Grindstone CE program. 
We'll take the opportunity to celebrate each other by presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award and the 2017-2018 ODs of the Year as well as GrassFire! awards to the RIOA members who made the biggest impact in 2018.
Dr. Bowen has served in this leadership capacity since July 2016, having been re-elected by AOA's House of Delegates in Denver last year.  We are thrilled to have her and look forward to welcoming her to the Ocean State!

Further details will be announced soon.  The event marks a wonderful opportunity to connect with old colleagues, meet new ones and celebrate us... the members of the RIOA.  Spouses and loved ones welcomed and encouraged to attend. 

RIOA members do not have to attend the day's CE program in order to attend.
