The most influential way to make a difference in WEMSA is to join the Board of Directors. Based upon feedback from applicants and due to some COVID restrictions regarding signature collection, we decided to extend the deadline to submit the Board application to Thursday, April 15th at 5:00pm.
Each year a third of WEMSA’s board leadership positions become available. One of the most influential ways to make a difference for EMS in Wisconsin is to become a member of the board. With representation from across the state, your voice is added to the others in a way that makes a direct impact on operations, funding, legislation, education and so much more!
Have you thought about how you can make more of a difference for EMS in Wisconsin? Do you have time to represent your region of the state or know someone who does? Here is how you can add your voice to WEMSA leadership.
The Board of Directors consists of various volunteer directors from throughout the state. Directors come from rural, suburban, and urban and educational systems within the EMS community. The Board consists of full-time, part-time, paid-on-call, educators/ influencers and volunteer services alike. Twelve association members comprise the Board of Directors, who serve staggered three-year terms that begin in July of each year. We currently have 4 positions up for election!
Board members provide financial oversight, establish strategic goals, provide advocacy, and help to advance the Association’s mission. Qualified candidates should possess visionary leadership and be willing to put their skills and knowledge to use, be able to dedicate time to the Board, and to assist the other WEMSA Board Directors’ in providing a vision for Wisconsin EMS in the future.
To be eligible, candidates must be a member of WEMSA a minimum of two years immediately preceding nomination.
