Volunteer Opportunities

The success of ATPO is due to the commitment of its members. ATPO presents many opportunities for you to show your dedication to your profession by sharing your time and expertise through volunteer efforts. ATPO and its community of eye care professionals needs your support in the following areas: 

ATPO's Annual Scientific Session
Each year we need volunteers to monitor rooms, collect evaluations and tickets, and check registrations at the Annual Scientific Session. Please contact the ATPO Manager if you are available.

Annual Meeting Instructors and Co-Instructors
Volunteers are needed to instruct and co-instruct workshops during the JCAHPO and ATPO Annual Continuing Education Program for Ophthalmic Medical Personnel. Please contact the JCAHPO Education Department if you would like to teach.

ATPO Regional Education Meetings

Volunteers are needed to instruct at regional education workshops throughout the year.
