AOS files Chapter 11, will continue to represent interests of ODs

Article

The American Optometric Society (AOS) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and confirms it will continue to operate.

 

Los Angeles-The American Optometric Society (AOS) has confirmed that it will continue to operate as the professional optometric organization representing the individual optometrist.

Following the AOS vs. American Board of Optometry (ABO) lawsuit, the organization has received widespread encouragement from both members and non-members alike, according to the AOS.

In order to continue its mission, the AOS has chosen to seek protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. The AOS will operate no differently, in principle, both in identifying significant issues in the profession and supporting organized optometry, at the state and national level.

The AOS will continue to mobilize a broad base of support to bring about positive change and prevent our profession from being damaged and divided.

Also, the AOS that will hold its 4th Annual CE Symposium April 12-14 at the Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio; the 3rd annual Harvey Yamamoto Student Scholarship will be awarded at that time. Early bird registration continues through Jan. 31.
