POF tunes in to Provide what YOU want in 2009!
The Professional Opticians of Florida has adjusted their 2009 events to help meet the changing needs of their membership, by providing education in growth strategies and lower prices.

During 2009 educational events, POF is offering courses specifically designed to help opticians weather the current economic climate. New hot topics include Strategies for Growing Your Business in a Slow Economy, Marketing Effectively to Existing Customers, and The Optician’s Role as the Vision Specialist.

POF has also lowered their registration fees for this year’s education and secured lower hotel rates at the 2009 events, the hotel rates this year are at least $20 a night less than last year at most of the hotels.

Now more than ever, it is important to us to be sensitive to our member’s educational needs as well as to their wallets; that is why we lowered their costs,” states POF president, Jerry W. Campbell, LDO.

Campbell also added, "This year more than ever, our goal is to assist opticians in gaining the knowledge and confidence to be even more effective at dispensing the best value for their patients’ vision solution needs in all practice settings. Whether running a one-person shop or working in large-scale retail, all opticians are important to us."
