“NAAOP’s primary focus is the federal government and the policy making agenda in our nation’s capital, however there is a confluence of issues that are federal and state in nature and we must go forward making sure that no federal policy has negative influences on the state.”
Peter W. Thomas, General Counsel, NAAOP
“NAAOP has a proven track record in working effectively with government officials and agencies at both the federal and state levels to achieve real results for both O&P professionals and patients.”
David McGill, NAAOP President
“I’d like to encourage folks in the O&P profession, those who practice, those who manufacture, those who want to be a part of a group that always puts the patient first, to consider joining NAAOP.”
George W. Breece, Executive Director, NAAOP
