    My name is Matthew Geller and I am leader of the Pre-Optometry club
    that we have here over at SUNY Albany.

    Are you interested in attending the biggest Pre-Optometry confrence of
    2009 and meeting the leaders in the field of Optometry?

    Myself and a classmate Rob Register created the Pre-Optometry club at the
    end of our freshman year here at Albany and seeing as that we are now
    seniors, accepted into Optometry school and graduating in May, we decided
    to go out with a BANG!

    We are holding an Optometric Convention on March 14th 2009 (Saturday
    night) in the SUNY Albany Ball Room. Although we are planning the event
    now, it will be a 3 hour FULLY CATERED event with many great guest
    speakers.

    So seeing as this is an Optometry Forum , I assume you are all interested in the field of Optometry, so this
    event is your chance to meet some great people in the field and to get your
    name out there!

    We plan to have Admissions Staff from NECO (Dr. Potaznick) and SUNY
    Optometry (Dr. Johnston) to come and speak along with opticians,
    optometrists, and ophthalmologists. Along with this there will be
    pre-optometry students and current Optometry students speaking at the
    event. As another treat we will be having Optometric business consultants
    to come and discuss the business model of optometry. (Other guest speakers
    from other optometry schools are still pending, but it is looking good!)

    The event is going to be a one of a kind and absolutely phenomenal. We
    know that everyone involved will truly benefit with this great exchange of
    value and knowledge. Nothing like this has been done before so NOW is your
    chance to RSVP to the greatest Optometric Convention for Pre-Optometry
    students of 2009!

    If you are interested, just send an e-mail to [email protected] or PM me
    saying that you would like to attend. From here we can send you a formal
    invitation and give you more details.

    Also check out our club website at www.SUNYAlbanyPreOptometry.com

    Thanks so much, we look forward to seeing you in March!
