Great Western Council of Optometry
The Great Western Council of Optometry (GWCO) is a nonprofit formed in 1991 to provide a common voice for regional members within the American Optometric Association (AOA). This council facilitates communication, enhances professional development, and provides financial support to affiliated state optometric associations. Today, GWCO is comprised of thirteen member state optometry associations including; Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. A representative from each state makes up the GWCO Board of Directors. GWCO’s annual meeting, the GWCO Congress was developed to provide an educational venue for GWCO state optometrists to come together and receive high-quality, multi-track optometric education, which was not always available in smaller western states. Our team at SBI Association Management is very excited to provide our expertise in helping GWCO to advance their educational offerings and enhance their annual event.
