To AEMTA Members and Guest
I’d like to personally thank each of you that attended to the Arkansas EMT Association’s 2014 EMS Educational Symposium and Trade Show.
It’s an exciting time for the AEMTA as we continue to grow and adapt, remaining always adaptable, motivated and responsive our members needs and being open to new ideas. Our organization is confronting a time of many changes and we’re meeting these changes during a time of larger state-wide and national change. The AEMTA Symposium and Trade show (Formally known as the EMS Conference) has always been an exciting event in which to work/study/play, and we’ll continue to meet and bring inspired people together in forums like this, to ensure the longevity and continued success of our organization.
This AEMTA conference website and the online program guide will give you an idea of what you can expect and what we hope to achieve during this year’s upcoming symposium and trade show. We’re transforming the way we operate to continuously improve our ability to provide the most innovative, cutting edge pre-hospital care, educational strategies and technology available to our Arkansas EMS Professionals.
These professionals and our partners have continued to meet the challenges of our field and to excel despite setbacks. We should all be very proud of where we are today and excited about where we are headed in the future.
Before I close, on behalf of the AEMTA Board and Conference Planning Committee, I’d like to thank each of you for your support to Arkansas EMS and for attending this year’s EMS Educational Symposium and Trade Show. Its people like you that continue to have the vision, the knowledge, the wherewithal and the experience to help us pave our way into the future. You are truly our greatest asset today and tomorrow, and we could not accomplish what we do without your support. Throughout this conference, I asked you to stay engaged, keep us proactive and help us shape the future of Arkansas EMS. My personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you. We are planning your EMS Educational Symposium and Trade Show for next year.
Ronny Russell, President
Arkansas EMT Association
