2019 AOA+ Influencer
What is an AOA+ Influencer?
Influencers are people who have built a reputation for their knowledge and expertise on a particular topic. They make regular posts about a topic on their preferred social media channels and generate large followings of enthusiastic engaged people. When you post, be sure to tag Optometry's Meeting using #OM2019.
Why does AOA+ have official Influencers?
We need our members to promote Optometry's Meeting 2019 and talk about their positive experiences and takeaways from previous years' meetings. We need to break through the communication clutter that is thrown at students and focus on the amazing experiences offered to them as AOA/AOSA members.
