Associate Member Benefits

As an Associate Member of the Illinois Optometric Association, you have access to all of the same benefits as O.D. members. 

  • You can use IOA membership as a common ground when calling on other IOA members; this means you will be a “fellow member” with approximately 1,100 O.D.’s in Illinois.
  • You may receive the IOA membership listing – names and addresses.
  • You will keep informed and up-to-date on those events and activities that influence optometry in Illinois. Knowing the current issues of Illinois O.D.’s gives you “inside” information.
  • You receive all regular member publications and special mailings.
  • You can use the IOA logo with “Associate Member” on your personal calling cards and stationery. Let your fellow members know who you are and that you support optometry.
  • You save money by receiving discounts on Journal advertising, IOA Convention booth space and other IOA services.
  • In addition to discounted Journal advertising you receive a FREE banner ad in our monthly eNews that is distributed to over 1,100 members.
  • You are recognized on the IOA website and other IOA publications as well as special signage at your booth at Convention. Other members will know how to contact YOU.
  • You are showing your support and good will on behalf of your company/practice to all members of the IOA. All IOA members have made an investment in optometry through membership – you show support through membership as well.
  • As optometry grows stronger, so will you.
  • You have an opportunity to place articles in the official publication of the IOA.

These benefits are available to you at a yearly cost of only $683.

Membership Restrictions:

  1. Associate Members may identify themselves as supporting the IOA and the profession of optometry, but may not claim that their products or services are endorsed or approved by the IOA.
  2. Associate Members may use the IOA logo with the term “Associate Member”, but may not hold themselves out to be a representative of the IOA in any way.
