SECO International and Energeyes have partnered to combine the Energeyes East Coast Regional Meeting with SECO 2016, which will be held Feb. 24-28, 2016 in Atlanta. This is the first time SECO and Energeyes have partnered to co-host a meeting. SECO has similar partnerships with the Armed Forces Optometric Society (AFOS) and the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD), both of which host their meetings in conjunction with the SECO Congress.
“We are excited about this new partnership and consider it an opportunity to bring new groups, such as Energeyes, to our annual congress,” said Dr. Stan Dickerson, president of SECO International. “Forming partnerships like this is one of our strategic goals to not only strengthen participation at our congress, but to benefit both organizations by providing greater value to optometrists everywhere.”
As enrollment in the Energeyes has crossed 500 members, the Association has sought new and additional educational opportunities to better serve members. SECO represents an easy opportunity to offer the membership a robust educational offering coupled with the ability to meet for a second time in the year as an Association. “We are delighted with the SECO partnership,” reported Dr. Mark J. Uhler, President of the Energeyes Association. “This will strengthen our educational offerings nationally and as a result, we will be moving our 2016 Energeyes National Meeting to September 23 – 25, 2016 to accommodate the SECO meeting.”
As part of the agreement, both organizations will work together to promote both the Energeyes East Coast Meeting and the SECO 2016 congress to their respective members and potential members. All Energeyes members will receive a $50 SECO member discount to attend the SECO 2016 Congress.
