Annual Congress – Paraoptometric

TAOP 116th Annual Congress
October 10-13, 2019
Park Vista Hotel
Gatlinburg, Tennessee


On behalf of the TAOP Officers, Trustees and Committee Volunteers we would like to invite your participation in the 118th  Annual Congress which will be held October 10 -13, 2019 at the once again newly renovated Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg. An outstanding CE program has been developed for this year's Congress featuring nationally known speakers who will present subject matter important to all Optometrists in this constantly changing healthcare delivery system.  L

In addition, the Congress will offer an excellent Paraoptometric CE Program which would be very beneficial to your staff and ultimately to your practice. Above are links to the Paraoptometric program and Congress registration forms for both Optometrists and Paraoptometrics - both the online and printable versions. Please feel free to make copies of any of these registration forms for use by others.  

While we are very proud of the educational opportunities for physicians and staff that will be offered during this Congress, we are also excited about the special events that are planned for the meeting. On Friday evening, we will host the President's Reception which will be immediately followed by TAOP's 5th Annual Casino Party.  You do not want to miss our TOTALLY TUBULAR 80’s theme Casino Party this year!  Bring out your best 80’s attire for a righteous time! Prizes will be given for best 80’s attire, hair, etc. In addition, on Saturday, we will host a viewing of the UT v. Mississippi State Football Game in TAOP's "Sports Bar" with plenty of beverages and food for all. This could be TAOP's biggest and greatest Annual Congress and is one you will not want to miss. 

TAOP staff will organize group tee times for any golfers who want to challenge one of the mountain courses.  Simply call the TAOP office at 1-800-451-2438 and Gary or Lesley will assist in coordinating that effort.  We have been doing this at the Spring meeting in Sandestin and it has worked well.
