Volunteer for a Committee and Lend Your Experience and Expertise

ACEP and Emergency Medicine Need your Assistance

The process to select members to serve on ACEP committees is beginning and all ACEP members are encouraged to apply.

EMRA members who are interested in serving as that organization's representative on an ACEP committee should also apply. The process is the same for resident and active members and you can expedite the process by using the online application.

If you are not currently serving on a national ACEP committee you must submit a current CV to volunteer for a committee. Please attach your CV to the online form or mail it to ACEP headquarters. You may also want to submit a letter of support from your chapter. Members who do not know how to contact their state chapters should call Dawn Scrofano, Chapter Services Manager, at 800-798-1822, ext. 3227, or send an e-mail to The procedure to submit both forms is included with the online application. After completion of the form, you should receive an acknowledgement that your committee interest form has been submitted. If you do not receive this message, please contact me by email or by phone.

The majority of committee work is accomplished through e-mail and conference calls. Committee members are expected to attend the organizational meetings at the annual meeting in Las Vegas, October 16-19, 2016.

Committee interest must be submitted by May 16, 2016. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Ellen Fletcher, CPC, CEDC, at 800-798-1822, ext. 3145, or Rebecca B. Parker, MD, FACEP, ACEP’s President-Elect, will finalize committee appointments in June. If appointed to an ACEP national committee, your appointment will not be considered final unless a completed Conflict of Interest form is submitted by the deadline.

Remember, your participation will make a difference. Please consider volunteering. ACEP and emergency medicine need your experience and expertise.

ACEP Committees provide important leadership to ACEP members, its Board and Council. Each Committee is appointed by the President to assist with activities for the year. ACEP has more than 30 committees and task forces working on issues such as ethics, emergency medicine practice, pediatric emergency care, disaster medicine and more. 

ACEP committees are members appointed by the President to assist the Board of Directors in its work and serve as work groups with specific responsibilities assigned by the President. Committee members serve for a specific period of time and are accountable to the President for achievement of assigned objectives. Task forces operate much like committees, but once their work is complete they are deactivated.
