Invitation to attend the Early Career Optometrists South Australia networking event: Meet the Board, on Wednesday 25 July 2018.

Early career optometrists, final year university students and other interested Optometry SA members are cordially invited to attend the Early Career Optometrists South Australia networking event: Meet the Board on Wednesday 25 July 2018.

The Optometry Board of Australia (the Board) is co-hosting the networking event with Early Career Optometrists SA to engage more directly with optometrists who are in the early stages of their career and have graduated within the last ten years. This has been identified as a strategic priority for the Board. As the future of the optometry profession, the Board views early career optometrists as an important stakeholder in Australian optometry regulation.

The event offers attendees the opportunity to:

  • meet the Board, including community Board members
  • learn the difference between the role of the Board and the role of Optometry Australia (OA)
  • learn about the future of optometry regulation in Australia and what OA and optometrists can do
  • ask the Board questions, and
  • learn how to become a Board or Committee member.
