    Lightbulb Optician state association members, could you identify yourself and your State ?

    Hi all,

    We have some serious issues to discuss and would like to identify anyone who sits on a State Association Board. Could you give your state and position on the board?

    Lets hear from MA!

    Jerry, I've sent this to a couple of friends who are active in the Opticians Assn of Massachusetts.Hopefully you will get some input from them.To avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest, I support the OAM, but I am not a member.Good luck in your quest.May all the windmills be behind you!

    Thanks that would be great. So far we have Massachusetts, Virginia, Arizona and Ohio. I hope to hear from more of you. The ideas we gather should help create a better understanding of what goals we should focus on and how to achieve them.

    Chip Anderson, Mississippi. I am the longest living member of ( A charter member in fact) MADO and my peers have never seen fit to elect or even nominate me for anything in our state association. This should tell you what my peers think of me.
