Reasons to Join MADO
Strength in Numbers
When it comes to dealing with regulatory agencies, and other aspects of
governmental oversight, Political Power comes with numbers.
Certification identifies you to the public and your co-workers
as someone who has met a national set of standards as a qualified
optician or contact lens technician.
Continuing education opportunities are a top priority for MADO. The
Association uses seminars and conventions as a means to provide a structured means of
maintaining a current and growing knowledge base in our profession.
Thanks to a special arrangement between
Optical and the Mississippi Association of Dispensing Opticians,
active members in good standing can now obtain discounted continuing
education online! All approved online courses can be applied toward
your ABO/NCLE continuing education requirements and there is no limit
to the number of online courses that you may submit. ABO/NCLE approval
status is listed on a each course.
All Mississippi opticians are welcome to take our online courses.
However, all active MADO members in good standing are eligible to
receive a 20% discount off individual courses through
Optical. We also invite you open a
Gold or Platinum Online CE account to save even more!.
Through membership in the Association, Mississippi opticians and contact lens
technicians have access to far-reaching resources through affiliation with the Opticians Association of America.
The Association provides its members with a directory of membership, and
distributes a newsletter in the fall, free of charge. Members also receive updates
on legislative and regulatory issues and upcoming meetings.
In addition to the referrals and contacts you make from new acquaintances
throughout Mississippi, this site lists all members in the state for customers surfing the
web, and will link them directly to your site, if you have one.
