Keeping with the tradition that the Optical Laboratories Association began in 2000, the Optical Lab Division's Optical Pioneers Hall of Fame nominating committee is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Optical Pioneers Hall of Fame.
All nominations will be reviewed by a committee of previous inductees and other long-standing individuals in the optical community. Candidates will be selected on the basis of their contribution to the optical laboratory industry. The nomination period will close on May 16, 2014.
