‘Our councillors play a crucial role in shaping our policy work and informing our member services. I look forward to working with them to drive change in the sector and advance the future of optics.’

The elected positions included dispensing opticians, newly qualified and early career optometrists, pre-registration optometrists and undergraduate students from across the UK. Councillors will begin their term of office on June 5 at the AOP’s annual AGM.
