Legislative Advocacy — The MOA serves as your eyes and ears by retaining lobbyists that maintain an active presence at the capitol in St. Paul, and helping volunteers to coordinate grassroots legislative contacts. Through promotion of proactive legislation and reaction to other legislation introduced, the MOA's goal is to create an environment that allows optometrists to practice to the highest level of optometric education with the restrictions on patient care.

Health Plan Advocacy — Just as with legislative advocacy, the MOA maintains constant communication with the major health plans in the state. The goal is to create an environment that allows optometry to practice to the highest level of optometric education with the fewest restrictions on patient care.
