Participation at the committee level is a great way to introduce yourself into the activities of New York ACEP. Committee member appointments are made by the President in consultation with the committee chair. Members with specific interests or expertise are encouraged to apply for committee membership.
Committee members serve for two years and may indicate an interest in reappointment. Reappointment however is not automatic and is at the discretion of the incoming President. The majority of committee work is accomplished through email and monthly conference calls. Committee members are required to participate in at least 6 of the 10 conference calls and expected to attend the in-person committee meeting held during the Scientific Assembly in July.
