2021 National Meeting
New Orleans

Saturday, November 13 through Monday, November 15, 2021


We are working hard to organize the 2021 AACO National Meeting . . . planned to be IN-PERSON during the American Academy of Ophthalmology conference in New Orleans.  With the pace of vaccinations at a high level, we are hopeful that travel once again will be possible, and your association leaders certainly hope you will be able to attend the conference.  Discussions are underway about how we can provide "virtual" opportunities to view the presentations.  More details on that will be available in the near future.
