The ACEP Council consists of members representing ACEP’s 53 chartered chapters (50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and Government Services), its sections of membership, the Association of Academic Chairs in Emergency Medicine (AACEM), the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors (CORD), the Emergency Medicine Residents' Association (EMRA) and the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM). Each year the Council elects members to the Board of Directors and ensures "grassroots" involvement in the democratic decision-making process.
The Council is a deliberative body that meets once a year for two days in conjunction with the College’s annual Scientific Assembly.
