Eyecare Plus has changed its board with much-respected Sydney optometrist SooJin Nam retiring, and Melbourne based optometrist Liz Muller elected by the members to replace her.
Ms Muller is the only Victorian based director and Chairman Justin Durkin welcomed her election.
“Liz will be a very welcome addition to the Board; she is very successful in private practice, and it’s great to once again have a Victorian voice on the Board,” said Mr Durkin.

He also paid tribute to retiring director, SooJin Nam.
“Soo has made an invaluable contribution to Eyecare Plus, and we thank her greatly for her service. She will continue to play an important role at Eyecare Plus, and will remain involved in our leaders’ programs into the future.”
The announcement was made at the recent High-Performance Boot Camp and Annual General Meeting for Eyecare Plus, which was held on the northern beaches of Sydney from 25–26 October.
Members travelled from several states to attend and witness inspiring addresses from keynote speakers including Liz Ellis OAM, former Australian netball captain, and a highly informative session about Medicare billing run by Simon Hanna from Optometry Australia.
The weekend also included a very popular trivia night and a ‘boot camp’ beach walk for members.
“The Boot Camp is a such a great event for our members; an opportunity to come together and share trade secrets, and learn from each other in a con-competitive environment. It’s one of the most valued elements of Eyecare Plus membership,” said Mr Durkin.
