2018 AOSA INFLUENCER

What is an 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.

Why does AOSA have official Influencers?
We need our members to promote Optometry’s Meeting (OM) 2018 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 being offered to them as AOA/AOSA members.
