Partnership Program

Being a North Carolina Optometric Society (NCOS) partner brings your company access to the eyes and ears of our membership and exclusive benefits at our Spring and Fall Congress events. With over 1,050 members, our marketing opportunities and logo placement on all of our various media provides your company with an extensive reach to optometrists throughout the state.

Our Congresses have an average attendance of over 400 optometrists from North Carolina and across the southeast (Fall Congress exhibit hall is exclusively for Diamond - Silver level partners). Diamond and Platinum partners even have the opportunity for exclusive access to our NCOS leadership, with coveted face-time at our Executive Council meetings.

Below is a list of our 2020 partnership levels. Check out our
