CSEPS launches "It’s Time to Get Involved" campaign

New campaign aims to provide you with meaningful volunteer opportunities

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 2014 statewide membership survey showed a series of priorities that ophthalmologists expect CSEPS to tackle. The survey also showed that our organization has a core group of members who are engaged, and a larger group of less engaged physicians. 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 people, like organizations, can get stuck in ruts.

That’s why we’re launching a new campaign, “It’s Time to Get Involved.” The 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 on our campaign website and note your interests through our volunteer interests form at the bottom of the page. These will be added to your CSEPS profile so you can change 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.

To thank you for participating in this campaign, all who enter your preferences will be added to a drawing to be one of four drivers in the Von Miller Celebrity Go-Kart Grand Prix on June 15. CSEPS supports Von’s vision to provide low-income children with eye care and corrective eyewear through his foundation, and is sponsoring a team to race with celebrities at this event. Get involved today and you might just win a chance to “put the pedal to the metal” with Denver Broncos Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller while helping his foundation in its mission.

For more information on any of the CSEPS volunteer opportunities, to suggest a project or role, or for general information on how to get involved, contact Chet Seward at chet_seward@cms.org.
