Mark your calendar: Our annual board meeting will be Nov. 1 in the Glacier Brewhouse conference room at 7 pm. We will work efficiently through an update of our chapter’s activities and will vote in new leaders and board members. We will discuss some of the issues facing Emergency Medicine and where we want to focus as an organization. Please reach out to me if you are interested in running for office or for the board. We especially would like to recruit some new energy into the group so please consider reaching out to me or joining the meeting to get involved. We are increasingly being invited into state healthcare discussions and we want your voice heard on legislation and regulations that could impact your practice. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
