It's Time to Get Involved with CSEPS
Share |

We asked, you answered, and now your Colorado Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons (CSEPS) is upgrading our services. We have totally revamped our website and communications platform, we are refining and expanding the number of education events focusing specifically on how changes in health care affect you, and we remain as resolute as ever championing your priorities at the state capitol. Now it’s time for you to get involved.

A 2017 statewide membership survey showed a series of priorities that ophthalmologists expect CSEPS to tackle. Importantly, the survey highlighted areas where we can engage with you, our member, better.  We know that everyone serves an important role and that not everyone can or wants to be involved at all times. We also know that organizations can always benefit from renewal with infusion of new ideas and people.

The It's Time to Get Involved campaign is focused on driving better ways to engage with you and leverage your skills, expertise and interests. We are committed to helping you meet your personal and professional goals through meaningful volunteer experiences – whether you’re looking to gain additional leadership training, build your resume, forge friendships or simply give back to your profession and your community.

We have many ways you can get involved. Some take only a few minutes, while others require a few hours. The important thing for you is to get involved in one way or another. We encourage you to explore the options below and note your interests in the form at the bottom of this page. We'll add your preferences to your member profile so you can update them at any time. Then we’ll alert you when an opportunity that fits your interest arises and we will work to ensure that it is as valuable as possible for both you and for CSEPS.

For more information on any of the projects or roles, to suggest a role, or for general information on how to get involved, contact Chet Seward.
