Discounted Registration — ALOA members received discounted registration at all ALOA-sponsored events.

AOA Membership — Your membership in the ALOA also gives you an automatic membership in the American Optometric Association (AOA).

Legislative Advocacy — The ALOA serves as your eyes and ears by retaining legislative counsel, maintaining a staff that is active at the capitol in Montgomery, and coordinating grassroots legislative contacts. Through promotion of proactive legislation and reaction to other legislation introduced, the ALOA's goal is to create an environment that allows optometrists to practice to the highest level of optometric education with the restrictions on patient care.
Health Plan Advocacy — Just as with legislative advocacy, the ALOA maintains constant communication with the major health plans in the state. The goal is to create an environment that allows optometry to practice to the highest level of optometric education with the fewest restrictions on patient care.
Education — The ALOA is committed to offering the latest and highest quality continuing education in the region and nation. All of our educational offerings bring in regional and national experts to make sure Alabama O.D.s are ahead of the curve with the latest clinical information.
