The COS has been growing in many ways in the last number of years. The board is exploring God's calling to the following ministries in sustainable manners. These areas include:

1.  Maintaining the highest quality attractive annual meeting that is family friendly
2.  Providing interaction or venues yearly within major medical meetings including the AAO, ASCRS, ASRS, AAPOS and ARVO.
3.  Partnering with local members to launch more Regional Refresh events around the country.
4.  Interacting more regularly with our missionary colleagues to provide a resource from the society of coordinated support in prayer, finances and on the ground support as needed.
5.  Support and encouragement of our European and African Christian colleagues as they continue to work towards subchapters of the society.
6.  Providing both print and digital resources for the practicing ophthalmologist and for those in training.
7.  Development of a mentor mentee network to support our members in training
8.  Helping Christian practices grow by facilitating placement of like minded physicians for employment or partnership
9.  Improving our ability to communicate with our growing membership by keeping our email and regular address database up to date on a regular basis.

The COS board is looking for "board member support" specifically in the following areas:

Finances: donor development, tax preparation, estate planning exploration
Membership development
Housestaff development (residents requested specifically)
Prayer and Spiritual Direction
Female Membership Development
Regional Refresh Coordination
Board support is important for our board members. Each board member will utilize 4 or 6 members in their specific areas to brainstorm and carry out specific small tasks for the society. Please consider serving in one of these capacities.

We are also interested in anyone with website or social media skills, marketing or newsletter design skills.
"Regional Refresh for Residents" is a Saturday only "mini-retreat" get together held regionally in areas where 3 or more residencies are clustered. Built around one or two talks, testimonies, or discussions, the COS sees this primarily as a time for fellowship, encouragement and connection to many who have not been able to attend an annual meeting.
