President's Perspective

Keith Edmonds, AEMTA President

Summer has arrived!!  It seems that Arkansas now only faces two seasons, winter and summer and nowhere can we locate spring and fall.  With the beginning of our summer months comes that time that we all are anxiously awaiting, CONFERENCE 2011!!

I am excited about the offerings that will be available this year at our annual South Central Regional EMS Conference held at the Hot Springs Convention Center on August 3 thru 7.  Many new lectures and lecturers will be waiting your arrival this year in order to better achieve the goals of the AEMTA, which is to provide you, the member with the educational opportunities that you have asked for in previous years.  I understand that there will actually be a leadership tract this year at conference to assist and provide information to the leaders of Arkansas EMS while building strength in those we look to for guidance.

I certainly hope to see you there and shake your hand or hug your neck.  I honestly appreciate each and every member for your support over the past year and a half while I have enjoyed seeing and meeting new faces along the way.
