AOM Day Event Drive  (click to participate)

A long-time staple of AOM Day is the AOM Day event drive coordinated by NCCAOM. This tradition continues with an untraditional twist in 2019. This year NCCAOM is doing more to reward the hard-working practitioners who take on the planning and running of AOM Day events. Everyone who registers an AOM Day event on the AOM Day website will be entered in a raffle drawing for a free voucher for NCCAOM Recertification OR towards NCCAOM Certification. Events that are registered by September 23rd, 2019 will be spotlighted in a nationally promoted social media campaign ahead of the AOM Day photo contest. Then, throughout October all events that are registered will be shared on NCCAOM’s social media channels. Finally, as a bonus, event registrants who provide photos to verify their event’s occurrence will receive two (2) PDA Points towards NCCAOM Recertification.
