NREMT Board of Directors Has Openings for Members-at-Large

COLUMBUS, OH — 27 September 2017 — The Board of Directors of the National Registry of Emergency Technicians is seeking qualified applicants for two at-large positions.

Openings for both a Physician-at-Large and an EMS Provider-at-Large are available. Both the Physician-at-Large and EMS Provider-at-Large are elected positions. Members-at-large serve four-year terms and are required to attend two NREMT Board of Directors meetings each year. Members-at-large may also sit on Board committees that require additional meetings or conference calls.

Candidates for both positions are expected to have demonstrable experience in EMS leadership and education and in the provision of emergency care. Previous involvement in NREMT initiatives is preferred. Additionally, candidates for the EMS Provider-at-Large position are required to hold National EMS Certification through the NREMT.

To be considered for either position, interested parties should send a cover letter and CV to the Board Nominations Committee Chair, Dr. David Persse, at board@nremt.org. Submissions received after October 13 will not be considered.

From the received applications, the Nominations Committee will select a slate of qualified candidates. Elections for both positions will be held at the November meeting of the NREMT Board of Directors, and terms will begin January 1, 2018.
