Fellowship Growth

Over the last year, interest in Fellowship has continued to grow. The Academy's Membership Committee has been focusing its efforts to meet the goals of the new Strategic Plan including promoting the FAAO distinction and recruiting new Candidates for Fellowship from graduating students to international optometrists to those working in a corporate setting. Another goal of the Membership Committee, as well as part of the Membership pillar of the Strategic Plan, is to increase diversity within the Academy.
