154.6  Expiration and renewal of licenses.

Every license to practice optometry shall expire in multiyear intervals as determined by the board. Application for renewal of such license shall be made in writing to the Iowa department of public health at least thirty days prior to the expiration date, accompanied by the required renewal fee and the affidavit of the licensee or other proof satisfactory to the department and to the Iowa state board of optometry examiners, that the applicant has annually attended, since the issuance of the last license to the applicant, an educational program or clinic as conducted by the Iowa Optometric Association, or its equivalent, for a period of at least two days. The attendance requirement at the educational program or clinic shall not be conditioned upon membership in the Iowa Optometric Association. Nonmembers shall be admitted to the annual educational program or clinic upon payment of their pro rata share of the cost. In lieu of attendance at the annual educational program or clinic, it shall be the duty of the board of optometry examiners to recognize and approve attendance at local optometric study group meetings as shall, in the judgment of the board, constitute an equivalent to attendance at the annual educational program of the association.
