WHO WE ARE
The Georgia Optometric Association's Political Action Committee (PAC) represents the interests of Georgia's optometrists and the communities they serve. Funds contributed to the GOA PAC are used to demonstrate support of our friends in the Georgia Legislature who fight on behalf of our issues at the Capitol.
WHAT WE DO
The GOA PAC helps elect and maintain pro-optometry state legislators who champion our causes under the Gold Dome. It is the goal of GOA PAC to strengthen political support for legislative issues facing the profession, and we do this with the support of the optometric community.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT
Optometry is a legislated profession. As a legislated profession, there are threats to your practice status EVERY year including the way you receive your licenses, disciplinary actions, scope of practice, access to patients and more. Therefore it is essential we elect officials who will champion the causes of our profession and represent the needs of our patients and practices.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
In order to help ensure the future of our profession it is important you contribute to GOA PAC. Your contributions support candidates for office and current legislators who share our commitment to the future of optometry in Georgia. In addition, become a legislative key person. Your elected officials want to hear from you! Make sure to attend Optometry's Day at the Capitol in January to begin building those relationships with your state representatives and senators. We appreciate your continued support and commitment to protecting our profession.
