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. 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.
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.
The College’s President-Elect, William P. Jaquis, MD, FACEP, has announced the beginning of the selection process for appointing members to serve on national ACEP committees during fiscal year 2019-20.
Members interested in serving on a national ACEP committee are asked to contact Mary Ellen Fletcher, CPC, CEDC, at 800-798-1822, ext. 3145, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the process.
If You Have an Interest in Volunteering, Now is the Time to Apply
Dr. Jaquis requests that in addition to submitting a curriculum vitae with the committee interest form, members should include specific information explaining qualifications and experiences relevant to a particular committee. Members are also encouraged to contact their chapter to obtain a letter of support for their appointment. Member interest and qualifications will be matched with College needs. A letter of support from a program director and/or mentor is required for residents and medical students. A list of current national ACEP committees, members, objectives, and annual reports are located below for your information.
Although most committee work will be accomplished through email and conference calls, committee members are expected to attend the organizational meetings at the annual meeting in Denver, CO, October 27-30, 2019. The appointment is contingent on the member completing a Conflict of Interest form and submitting by the deadline.
The deadline for submitting committee interest forms to Ms. Fletcher is May 17, 2019. Dr. Jaquis will finalize the committee appointments in late June, early July. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Fletcher at 800-798-1822, ext. 3145 or email@example.com.
