Under the auspices of OEPF yearly regional 2-day Congresses are organized in various regions of the United States. These congresses provide participants with Continuous Education (CE) as well as a wide array of interesting topics.
Seminars are presented by professionals in the field and all presentations have been reviewed and approved by the Congressional Education Committee.
Typically, the Congresses are scheduled when the regional Congress committee learns of interest in certain topics. For more information contact Karen Ruder

The Conference on Clinical Vision Care (CCVC) is held on the campus of Southern College of Optometry (SCO) in Memphis, Tennessee, every July. Many refer to it simply as, "The Memphis Meeting."
CCVC is a unique meeting that draws attendees from all over the world. Students and Residents are welcome (and encouraged!) to attend. CCVC is unlike most CE events you've attended, it's interactive and invites participation. A general topic is announced each year.
CCVC is sponsored by the Optometric Extension Program Foundation and Southern College of Optometry
