I will be attending the Global Specialty Lens Symposium in Las Vegas this week. I have interviews planned with our colleagues from Europe and Asia. These get togethers will give me the opportunity to go over the roll out of our new international academy and mission Ok Planet. This meeting brings attendees from around the world to Las Vegas so the opportunities are there to meet and hear from specialty rigid lens fitters from other countries. I will also use the opportunity to meet with our vendor supporters who are exhibiting at this event. I always look forward to the complete program of lectures and workshops that the GSLS board has put together because I know first hand how difficult a job it is.
