More than 20 interested candidates from across the country submitted resumes for this position. Several representatives of the UOA Board reviewed resumes, vetted the qualified candidates, and conducted extensive interviews of the top three candidates. The UOA Executive Board voted to appoint James M. Morris, Esq. to the CEO position of CEO. Morris served as the former Executive Director of the American Board of Opticianry & National Contact Lens Examiners.

UOA President, Ronnie Harbert, is confident in the Executive Board’s decision, stating, “Mr. Morris’s previous extensive experience in the ophthalmic community, along with his background in association management, ophthalmic lobbying initiatives, and business administration makes him the ideal choice.”
