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. Residents and candidate applicants may provide a letter from their program directors and/or mentors as well.
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. If you're not sure how to contact your state chapter, visit your chapter website or refer to the chapter offices list on this page. 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 us 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 Boston, MA, October 23-24, 2021.
Committee interest must be submitted by May 1, 2021. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Ellen Fletcher, CPC, CEDC, at 800-798-1822, ext. 3145, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Gillian R. Schmitz, MD, FACEP, ACEP's President-Elect, will finalize committee appointments in late 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. 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 35 committees and task forces working on issues such as ethics, emergency medicine practice, pediatric emergency care, disaster medicine and more.
