GWCO Congress 2020

The 2020 GWCO Congress will be VIRTUAL. 

We are committed to providing you with meaningful education.

As the uncertainty of the current climate continues to revolve around the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the GWCO Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to forgo an in-person Congress this fall (September 17-20, 2020) in Portland, Oregon.

The GWCO Board reached its decision after Governor Brown of Oregon released her "Plan for Rebuilding a Safe and Strong Oregon" that advises the cancellation of large gatherings (including conventions) through at least September 2020. Without a doubt, GWCO places the health and safety of our attendees, industry partners, and staff at our highest priority.

GWCO remains committed to delivering an unparalleled educational program that provides positive and meaningful experiences to ODs, paraoptometrics, students, and the at-large optometric community. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that plans are being finalized for a re-imagined, virtual GWCO Congress for this September!

Further details about dates, revised programming and activities, and updated industry partnership opportunities will be shared with the GWCO community in upcoming weeks.

So please stay tuned!

GWCO Congress was developed to provide an educational venue for the optometric professional in GWCO member states to come together and receive high-quality, multi-track optometric education. As a way to encourage the participation of members and state leaders, net profits from the annual congress are returned to the GWCO states based on an attendance formula.
