OOSS hosts two semi-annual meetings for members, prospective members and industry, typically in conjunction with the ASCRS and AAO conferences.  OOSS also hosts the ASC day at the Caribbean Eye meeting. 

Both meetings include a comprehensive Washington update by OOSS Washington Counsel Mike Romansky, J.D. OOSS works closely with ASOA and AAOE to develop ASC-oriented courses for both events.

In addition to annual meetings, the organization participates in and leads a variety of webinars, surveys, and podcasts throughout the year.
