Fire/EMS SocietyThe Arkansas Fire EMS Society of the Arkansas EMT Association met Saturday, March 15, 2009 at the Spring Fling in Morrilton.  We discussed several issues, including the formation of the competition committee for conference, the formation of the committee for merchandise sales for conference, and the possibility of changing the society bylaws concerning the Board of Directors. 

The Bylaws concerning the Board of Directors state that the Board is to be made up of five members, one from each of the five regions as defined by the AEMTA.  The proposed changes would have the Board be composed of the President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer and two more active members of the society at large elected by the active body of the society.  The matter will be brought before the body at the regularly scheduled meeting of the society at the Southeast Regional Conference in Hot Springs.

Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions concerning this or any other matter before the society are always welcome.  Feel free to contact me or either of the other officers.  We also need volunteers to help with the competition, booth, and other projects we have in the works.  The more the merrier!

Be safe,
Deanne May
