“We achieve many of VCA’s goals and objectives through the work and expertise that these committees bring to VCA,” saidBill Thomas, CEO and executive vice president of VCA. “The chairmen of these various committees are dedicated to our mission and their leadership will greatly help VCA to better the optical industry. I congratulate each of them for stepping forward to assume these important industry roles.”



VCA’s division and committee meetings offer members a chance to discuss and act on current and future issues facing the optical industry. These meetings are held throughout the year, many in conjunction with International Vision Expo tradeshows.
