Last year, we explored the possibilities and had a blast doing it!  

You won't want to miss out on this year!

What is The Connection? 

Attend IDOC's Annual National Conference, The Connection 2024, to network with your peers, receive certified continuing education courses, and leave inspired with new ideas to implement into your practice.

Education is available for everyone. There will be courses for every role within your practice including, Office Managers, Opticians, Optometric Techs, Front Desk, and Billers. Bring your entire staff so they are just as invested in your practice as you are.

We have an incredible keynote speaker lined up as well as complimentary childcare, an expanded Sponsor Marketplace with over 50 vendor partners, a Boots & Bandanas Ball party you won't want to miss, and so much more!  


The Connection 2024 is rich with opportunities for dynamic learning and team building. Roundtables are returning in 2024 providing you with an opportunity to interact with your peers and gain new insights for practice growth.

There will be a multitude of opportunities for team bonding, including yoga, a morning run, happy hours, and our Boots & Bandanas Ball party.

Don’t miss your chance to dive deep into professional growth, make meaningful connections with vendors and peers, and have some fun while you’re at it!
