PREVIOUS EVENTS

 

04/06/2020 VIRTUAL AGM

As you may be aware, the Herts LOC AGM which is normally held in March every year was delayed due to the current situation. I'm pleased to say the meeting will now be held via a virtual platform, Zoom, on Monday 6th July 2020 at 8:00pm.
We are all currently facing very difficult and unknown circumstances that we've never faced before. Part of our role here at the Herts LOC is to disseminate information to all local contractors and performers so you are able to understand and comply with your duties. We understand everyone has had to change the way they think and work in these unprecedented times. We endeavour to continue to keep you up to date with all the relevant information via email and our website. 

Our committee has a diverse range of experience and we all work together to support you. A large number of you have been in touch with us, now more than ever, with lots of questions and we will always answer or point you in the right direction. Please don't forget we are here to support you as practitioners in practice,. Therefore, it is vital for us to hear your wants, needs and views in the Optometric field, not only now during this global pandemic but in the future. 

This year, we are going to experience holding our AGM on a virtual platform for the first time. I would personally love to see as many of you ​attending as possible, at the very least it will be a great opportunity for you​ to hear what the committee has been up to over the last year, what our future plans are and get to know us a little bit more. Even though participation is not required, we welcome any feedback you may have.

HERTS LOC AGM 

 

Herts LOC held their last AGM on 25th March 2019 at the BioPark in WGC.  It  was an excellent opportunity for practitioners to find out about the LOC, the work that is done to represent practices (the industry), and how we can influence the direction and decisions that are made.

 

In times of change, such as changes in the NHS and the introduction of enhanced services in other areas, it is vital that we are heard and do everything we can to protect our patients and practices.

 

Each year now, one third of the LOC is up for election and we are actively seeking Optometrists and DOs with a passion for their roles and a desire to help represent their colleagues.
