Dear Member,

Membership in NYSSO is a commitment to your career.  "YOU BELONG. HERE" speaks to the importance of both professional education for licensure, and investment in a profession that demands excellence.

Members in NYSSO receive free regional accredited education, information critical to your work, entre to business partners essential to our practice, a regional connection that opens doors for career advancement and support, and a voice on policy and legislative issues that matter back home.

NYSSO recently took a hard look at its strategic priorities, member-value, and opportunities for growth.  We are a new NYSSO today, offering more communication and opportunities for engagement, and upping our game at every turn. 

Nothing NYSSO does is possible without the active involvement of its members and business partners.  Every member matters and makes a difference.  Thank you for your commitment and know:  We are the profession, WE all BELONG HERE, there are no options. Together, we will get this right for NYS Opticians!

Cherry Optical, Inc. hires smart NYS-licensed Opticians, has a product to fit most niches that you may not know are even available and does exceptional lab work. Visit their website! Thank you Cherry Optical, Inc. for sustained support of a NYSSO that is for Opticians and by Opticians.
