Member-to-member recruitment is the key to recruiting prospective members. Besides, who knows better about the benefits of COA than a member? More members mean more representation to achieve our goals in the California Legislature and in the health care arena, which means we all win!
As a California Optometric Association member, you are our biggest advocate and the best resource to grow membership. The larger our membership, the more we can do together to advocate for our profession and better serve our patients. It’s easy to refer your fellow doctors – simply have them complete a membership application noting that you are the referring member at the top, or have them contact Jodi Haas, COA membership development manager, at (916) 266-5038.
***COA will track all new member referrals. New members are defined as those who are either new dues-paying members to COA (Student and Paraoptometric members are not eligible) or those doctors who have not been members for six months or longer. New members must enroll in autopay or pay dues investment in full and remain in good standing to be counted as eligible referrals.***
