How do I become a member of SECO?

SECO International is dedicated to working hand-in-hand with our affiliated state optometric associations and optometry schools to offer unparalleled value to members. Currently, we have established relationships with 13 state optometric associations and five optometry schools, collaborating to address concerns and opportunities within the realm of optometric education.

Membership to SECO is extended to any practicing optometrist who is an active member of any of our 13 partner state associations. As a member of these associations, you are inherently a member of the Southern Council of Optometrists. This membership qualifies you for a $50 discount for the annual SECO Congress.

We’re also proud to include Associate members from various international optometry organizations, such as the Armed Forces Optometric Society, Association of Optometrists (UK), Colegio de Optometristas de Costa Rica, Federacion Colombiana de Optometras (FEDOPTO), South African Optometric Association, and the Trinidad & Tobago Optometrists Association.

In a nutshell, to become a member of SECO, you need to first become a member of one of our partner state associations.
