What Our Members Are Saying About OIDA
"OIDA has been essential to our communications and networking efforts. Without OIDA membership, we would not have been able to reach as many people to tell them about our products. In addition, we have been able to network with people in our field and exhibit at OSA conferences which has helped expand our network and global reach."
- Vincent Hardy, ALPAO
"OIDA is like a hub where the optics and photonics industry has the opportunity to get together, share insights, and build bridges for the future. As a member, we have access to numerous initiatives such as monthly market report updates serving as valuable input for making business decisions, conference and network events where new technology is presented, and other programs that facilitate the promotion of our industry. Together as a community, our support is important to create awareness of the rewarding work of our engineers who are working on applications that improve our daily lives in many ways."
