We Tried Something New…
And it seems to be working well. Your dedicated Board of Directors became even more dedicated to their roles and responsibilities with the Illinois EMT Association. We traditionally take the months of June, July and August away from our Association duties and don’t meet during the summer months. We reconvene in September and start digging in on annual conference then.
This year we did not take the summer off. We had such great momentum going following this year’s conference, I did not want to lose it during a summer break. We met in June and July on conference calls and performed both the business of the Association and annual conference planning. We only took August off. As Hannibal (of the A-Team) always said “I love it when a plan comes together”. And boy did it. We have our speaker line-up pretty much finalized and Alan Davis is working his magic on scheduling. We have the theme chosen for the entire conference, as well as the Saturday night social event. We have some exciting new sponsors as well as returning vendors. In all, it is shaping up to become another great IEMTA Annual Conference!
We usually don’t have this much work done until January. If you know or see one of the board members, please take a minute to thank them for their efforts. They will appreciate it. See you in March!
