Comment: It pays to belong

Lynn Eaton asks what CSP membership means to you.

For some it’s about attending events like the CSP’s annual conference in Liverpool in the coming days (16-17 October). If you can’t make it, you’ll be able to read more about it in the next issue of Frontline, along with an interview with the incoming chair, Catherine Pope.
But as Sue Rees steps down as chair of CSP council, it’s a chance to reflect on all that’s been achieved by and for members in the last two years.  
Many of you took part in either the annual Workout at Work Day or in Older People’s Day events to help raise the profile of physiotherapy beyond the profession. 
Others made their voice heard in protest over cuts in services or austerity measures. 
Maybe you’re one of CSP’s 17,800 followers on Twitter, actively reading and retweeting CSP messages to people that matter?
Some of you will have turned to the CSP when things went wrong at work (see page 16).
Whatever your involvement with the CSP, it all counts, no matter how small. As an active CSP member, you’re helping to shape a clear vision for the future of your profession. 
But you also look for leaders in your profession. Our online presentation helps do that. And do use our 2016 calendar, free with this issue, as a reminder of the CSP vision for the year ahead. 
And, of course, reading Frontline is just one more way of keeping involved. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
