College regional events are designed to bring College members and leading experts together to learn more about the latest developments affecting optometry. Through the events, we aim to support members by providing high quality continuing professional development (CPD) or CET opportunities and offer the chance for members to network with College representatives and other local practitioners.
The events take place on a mid-week evening, and take the format of refreshments followed by two lectures, with plenty of networking opportunities. There are usually two CET points available.
The events are free for paid-up College members.
