The G.N. Getman Award is presented to a developmentally-oriented optometrist with clinical expertise and application in office structure and professional activity. The recipient must demonstrate a personal and professional concern for all patients, especially children, which exceeds all else.

Nominations for this award are made by members of COVD. The decision is made by a committee of the three most recent award winners, the current President, the Immediate Past President, and a member-at-large appointed by the President of COVD.

Nomination period for the 2018 Annual Meeting has ended.
