History of APOMA

We are now in our 30th year!

What an amazing accomplishment, and it is all due to membership commitments from you – our members.

To highlight just a few our benefits:

Remembering Rick Nasca

Rick was a champion for our industry and for optics education. Rick became involved in APOMA in the late 80’s, always willing to share ideas, ask questions, make an introduction, or offer his support. He worked with the Corning Foundation, which has allowed the Monroe Community College optics program to flourish, providing the workforce that our growing companies need, and a career path for those who hadn’t thought college was right for them.  As a devoted supporter of the optics industry and its future, Rick was a familiar, friendly face that could always be found at events. We are committed to carrying on his work.
