Each year we host an awards ceremony to recognise all those who have achieved WCSM qualifications in the previous year and to present Freedom of the Company to those who wish to make their Declarations in public.
Those receiving certificates often bring supporters – family, friends, a manager or someone who has encouraged their work – and we are always delighted to welcome these guests. The ceremony is followed by a buffet lunch at which new members of the Company and successful candidates can meet with some of the “great and the good” of the optical world and talk about their careers with very experienced practitioners. Certificate and prize winners attend as the Company’s guests; private guests just pay for their lunch.
The Ceremony is a wonderful occasion and one of the highlights of the Company calendar.
