In the blink of eye, it's almost November. Realizing that the end of the year is a critical time for everyone’s business, I wanted to take just a moment to highlight some things we are working on to consistently bring even more value to your OPGA membership. 

The next several weeks has the OPGA team on the road to support various organizations where we will be able to spend time with members, supplier partners, patients, and O&P stakeholders. We are proud to attend and support the Rocky Mountain Orthotics and Prosthetics Coalition’s Educational Conference, the Challenged Athletes Foundation’s Annual San Diego Triathlon Challenge, and the Lead the Way Conference

Behind the scenes, we are working on several fronts to bring more in-depth and expert educational resources. In the coming months, you will see several webinars and podcasts showcasing new and innovative products and services, as well as billing and reimbursement advice, among other topics. We are also working to finalize some additional educational courses to help you as a business owner continue to grow and optimize your efficiencies. Finally, be on the lookout for several announcements and introductions to new and additional OPGA supplier partners to give you even more options, exclusive discounts, and access to their products and services. 

Finally, I am excited as we are able to announce these enhancements. Our community represents the backbone of the O&P field and OPGA’s focus and mission has been, and will continue to be, to provide resources to help your practice thrive. However, we need your help. In the coming weeks, we will be launching the second annual OPGA Member Engagement Survey. This direct feedback helps us know what is important to you and provides us ways on what we can do to best support you and your practice. Be on the lookout for that link coming soon, and new this year - you will be entered to win a giveaway as a thank you for your participation!  

As always, thank you for all you do for the O&P field, your patients, and your continued support of OPGA.
 Adam Miller
