Key Person Program
Have you communicated with your legislators by letter, fax, email or phone? Worked on a legislative campaign or gone to a fundraiser? Have you attended COA Legislative Day (formerly known as KP Day)? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are a Key Person!
A Key Person is a COA member volunteer, an OD or student, who educates lawmakers about issues important to optometry. This grassroots work is incredibly powerful, as Legislators really do listen to their constituents.
There’s no better advocate than a doctor of optometry willing to commit time and resources to educate candidates for state office about the profession and to build relationships with lawmakers. Ready to win one for optometry? Learn how and become a key to COA’s ongoing legislative success. For more information and to become a Key Person today, contact the COA grassroots manager at (916) 441-3990, ext. 231 or JAndrade@coavision.org.
