President’s Council Membership
Membership in the President’s Council is open to all executives, directors and managers affiliated with OOSS member ASCs and industry partners. President’s Council members express their individual support for the advocacy efforts and initiative of OOSS and have opportunities throughout the year to network and share advocacy interests with the President, Executive Committee and Washington Counsel. Membership includes special invitations to the annual Meet & Greet Receptions at the annual OOSS Perspective@ASCRS and OOSS Symposium@AAO events.
President’s Council members provide added resource and leadership, enabling OOSS to advocate effectively on behalf of the entire ophthalmic ASC community. Aggressive stances on office-based surgery, orchestrated efforts to address sensible standards for sterilization, and collaborations to challenge onerous payer tactics that put patients at risk are but a few examples of OOSS success made possible in large part by President’s Council support.
