Whats Included In Your Membership?

Members’ Meetings

The regular (normally biannual) Members’ Meetings provide the forum for ensuring that while the Board of directors oversee the day to day running of OSA, members are involved in all aspects of OSA’s planning.

These meetings offer the opportunity for members to receive industry specific presentations, provide the opportunity to network with colleagues and keep up to date with developments in optical supplying. OSA encourages member collaboration, and these meetings are a perfect opportunity for membership input into the organisation.

The last Members’ Meeting was held on 20th March 2024 at Friends House, London. There was a full update from the Chair and Directors on what had been an extremely busy start to 2024. The meeting discussed the ongoing developments with regards to the OSA’s progress with the E-Health focus group; the NHS have praised OSA’s ability to provide a voice for all UK suppliers in this field. There were presentations from Nathan Garnett of Media 10 on a hugely successful 100%, as well as from Ann Blackmore on progress to date with regards to MHRA and MDR.

The Autumn Members Meeting is taking place on Wednesday 16th October (tbc) at Friends House, London. We will provide updates soon on the confirmation and schedule of the event.

Focus Groups

OSA members can belong to any of the current Focus Groups: E-Health, equipment, frames, lenses, and sustainability. As the OSA appeals to a wider range of companies our focus groups provide a balanced and comprehensive overview of the marketplace.

OSA members supply the UK optical marketplace. Focus groups ensure that each specific area is promoted to each sector accordingly via training and communication. Focus groups hold meetings throughout year and members are kept informed on when they take place.

The HR Solutions Knowledge Base allows you access to 1000s of practical HR tools and guidance, as well as template policies, letters and checklists to help you with every HR scenario you can imagine.
