OpticalCEUs Fall Seminar Still Scheduled for Oct. 28

OpticalCEU's will hold its annual Fall Seminar for opticians at the Grand Pequot at Foxwoods on Oct. 28th.

“With the forecasts from the National Weather Service indicating that the effects of the storm not reaching the area until Monday morning at the earliest, we see no reason for cancelling the seminar,” says Linda Conlin, founder and lecturer for OpticalCEU's. “We will monitor the situation. We will let attendees know if there is a change of plans.”For the quickest information, check here at OpticalCEUs Website or on this blog  for updates. If you do not see an update, then the seminar will go as planned. 

This year F.E. Enterprises has a full-day, 7-credit program at the Grand Pequot Ballroom, Foxwoods Resort and Casino. In response to attendee requests, OpticalCEUs added a more comfortable learning environment to accompany our Grand Pequot Ballroom conference space.
