To the future!

Wow! What a crazy yet amazing year 2015 was

Our goal has always been to enrich students’ academic and social lives by providing events, support and networking opportunities whether it be with optom buddies, academia or industry professionals. This year we worked with a number of different teams,  special shoutout to Optometry Australia, Young Optometrists, Coopervision, Opticare, Luxottica, Designs for Vision, OptiMed, Provision and Specsavers. This is an inspiring time for optometry students, as we are blessed with opportunities, learning facilities and academia we could only ever dream of.

It’s a bittersweet moment for us, as the old executive team, but I am positive the amazing executives of: Henrietta, Vincent, Sarah and Ronald will make 2016 the best year yet.

Let’s recap a few memorable moments from the year:

First off, I’d like to introduce the new committee for 2015. This year’s committee will be headed by myself, Wilson, with Rose, Matt and Nora filling in the Vice presidency, treasury and secretary roles respectively. The old guard have done a wonderful job and we look to one up them!
