1921 Annual Meeting

You're invited to help write OSA’S 100th Anniversary Story!

OSA will be 100 years old in 2016 and we are planning a big celebration to commemorate this historic event. Our focus is on the extraordinary people who have advanced the field and have been an important part of our community.

Please share with us your stories, photos and anecdotes about your experience with OSA and its members. We will choose submissions to be included in OPN magazine and on OSA’s Centennial web site that will be launched in late 2015. Without you, our valued members, there would be no OSA!
