The three TLC Centers in Virginia - Tysons Corner, Charlottesville, and Richmond - sponsored the VOA Annual Meeting and Exhibition Hall held Friday - Sunday, June 7 - 9 at Wintergreen Resorts.  TLC sponsored the Sunday Morning Coffee and a booth at the Exhibition Hall.

This year's meeting was probably the best that I have been to in the past seven years that I have been a member of the VOA.  (I have attended all except last year's which I had to skip because of a wedding.)  The lectures were given by excellent speakers that were both knowledgeable about their topics and organized.  I love organized lectures!  The layout of the exhibition hall allowed attendees to easily move from one booth to the other so that all vendors were kept busy throughout the weekend.

John Ball, Center Manager of TLC Richmond, actually won the 50-50 drawing.  His usual philanthropic self, he donated almost all the money back to the VOPAC fund!  

At the Business Meetings, Key TLC Affiliates were recognized:

TLC Tysons Corner

Dr. George Brown, Springfield, VA - Keyperson of the Year

Dr. Robert Allen, Ashburn, VA - Elected to Secretary/Treasurer of the VOA

Dr. Robert Bass, Manassas, VA - Elected to President of the VOA

Dr. Tina Burr, Woodbridge, VA - Re-elected to the VOA Board of Trustees

Dr. Scott Dilzer, Purcellville, VA - Continues his term on the VOA BOT

TLC Charlottesville

Dr. Shannon Franklin, Crozet, VA - Optometrist of the Year; Immediate Past President

Dr. John Leeth, Waynesboro, VA - Distinguished Achievement

Dr. Jennifer Davis, Waynesboro, VA - Re-elected to the VOA BOT

Congratulations, everyone!  Looking forward to another great year on the VOA BOT with you all!

The weather was lacking at first.  Lots of rain and fog.  I couldn't see the mountains for the longest time. But, the rain stopped on Saturday evening just in time for a sunset reception outside overlooking the mountains.  What beauty!

See you at the Fall Conference in October where we will be sponsoring the Saturday Evening Reception. - jw
