POA 2022 Leadership Development

Sponsored By: PA

February 12 - October 9, 2022

State College and Champion, PA




We are offering a leadership development course in 2022!


If you are a POA volunteer or would like to become a POA volunteer leader on state or local society levels, we urge you to apply to our Leadership Development Program.

We will kick off with a live meeting on Saturday, February 12 from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM at the Hyatt Place in State College.

We will wrap up on Sunday, October 9 from 8:00 AM - noon at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Champion, PA.

In between, we will have a series of Zooms. Our goal is for you to gain leadership skills and a better understanding of the POA, our leadership structure, and volunteer opportunities.

We recommend you apply as early as possible to reserve a spot. Applications close January 21, 2022.

Please send questions about the leadership program to tsepich@restoreeyecare.com.

There is no cost to participate in the program, but you will have to provide your own transportation, meals, and lodging. We are encouraging local societies that are able, to reimburse travel expenses. Room blocks will be available at each live meeting location. Room reservations can be made at the Hyatt Place prior to January 11, 2022, by calling 1-888 HYATT HP (1-888-492-8847) (Hyatt Place) or by going online to https://statecollege.place.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html. The February leadership development meeting will follow the POA winter Board of Directors meeting and the October Leadership Development Program will follow the POA fall Board of Directors, strategic planning, and education meetings.
