The past two years have been memorable in many ways. My term began at the highly successful and enjoyable CAO Biennial Congress in Winnipeg and is ending in what will surely be another Congress to remember. As CAO President, my primary responsibility is to the CAO Council and Executive Committee. This involves chairing six meetings each year, held in various regions throughout Canada. I also represented CAO at provincial Annual General Meetings, Schools of Optometry (White Coat Ceremony and Awards/Graduation), the Optometric Leaders’ Forum, the American Optometric Association, and the Vision Institute of Canada, and much, much more. There was indeed a great amount of travel and interaction with colleagues.
