2021 AAO Conference

The Alberta Association of Optometrists is celebrating its 100-year anniversary! This year’s conference, A Celebration of Success, was an exciting time for optometrists to connect with each other and industry professionals. It was an opportunity for professional development, networking, and to see what’s new in the industry.

  CAO National Congress – 2021 Postponed to July 6-9, 2022

Last October, CAO’s Council considered the feasibility of pursuing Congress in St. John’s in July, 2021 given the uncertainty of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In the interests of ensuring the most robust event possible, Council decided to postpone Congress 2021 to July 6-9, 2022  in St. John’s.  Council further decided that although holding the event in 2022 disrupts the traditional hosting of Congress in odd years, it would not change the rotation going forward, and will still pursue Congress in 2023 in Quebec City.
