AOP membership fee offer

Join now for 20% off AOP membership

The Association of Optometrists (AOP) is offering non- or lapsed members 20% off the membership fee in 2020. 

Henrietta Alderman, AOP Chief Executive said: “Due to the challenges of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis facing many optical professionals, we are keen to ensure that the benefits of AOP membership and the support that membership provides can be accessed by as many optometrists as possible. 

“For this reason, the AOP is offering lapsed members the opportunity to re-join in 2020, and non-members the opportunity to join, with 20% off the normal membership fee. The AOP offers an unrivalled package of member benefits for all optometrists, from employed, to locums and practice owners. On joining, you’ll receive access to the AOP in-house legal team, expert legal, clinical and regulatory guidance, and the online resources that the AOP has developed to help members during this difficult time.”

Record numbers of members have turned to the AOP in recent months with questions relating to the COVID-19 crisis. The employment law team is currently advising members on furlough, self-employment, salary, discrimination and redundancy matters including PPE, testing times and clinical hygiene.

Lapsed members can re-join by visiting www.aop.org.uk/myaop and logging into their previous account. New members should visit www.aop.org.uk/join, and both can call the AOP membership team on 020 7549 2010 if they have any issues joining online, or simply wish to speak to one of the team.
