911 Legislative Network
The more than 1350 ACEP and EMRA members participating in the 911 Legislative Network act as resources and health care issue experts for federal legislators to maximize the voice of emergency medicine in the federal legislative process. ACEP established the Network in 1998 to encourage our members to cultivate long-term relationships with federal legislators, convey ACEP's legislative and regulatory priorities-in an effective manner, and affect the final outcome of federal legislation important to the specialty of emergency medicine.
