Benefits include:
student member community;
the monthly newsletters, which include relevant articles, interesting cases, billing tips and general news about those things impacting optometry;  
discounted fees for the AAO Annual Conference;
member credentials, so you can access the members only section of the AAO website – check out jobs in Alberta; the billing guide; drug app; and member resources; and
