Welcome to the Montana Optometric Association!
We regret to inform you that the May 2020 Conference has been canceled.
While the national response to COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, the MOA Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference.
Given recommendations from the White House that Americans cancel or postpone events of 10-plus people and to avoid travel, MOA is not holding any in-person meetings until further notice. If you were registered or planned to exhibit or sponsor at the MOA Annual Convention to be held on May 6-8, you will be refunded or you may request that you be credited for a future event. MOA will explore alternative means of delivering educational content. For more information please contact MOA at email@example.com
MOA is exploring future CE options to meet your licensure needs.
