NEW! Call For Nominations 2016 Directors
Arkansas Ambulance Association
In accordance with the By Laws of the Arkansas Ambulance Association, it is time to call for nominations for Officers and Directors that wish to serve the Association. The recent amendments to the ArAA By Laws have expanded the number of Directors to nine (9), and with this year’s elections, elected members drawing 1-year lots will be up for full term election.
Serving on the Board provides tremendous opportunities for you to help steer the course of your association, work with other EMS leaders from across the state and nation, play a key role in influencing issues of importance in EMS, and represent the interests of all EMS professionals.
Serving as a Board of Director also carries a tremendous responsibility. Board members are expected to participate in frequent meetings many of which are held via conference call, participate on committees and in work groups, represent the Association at EMS events and conferences, and attend the ArAA Annual Meeting. Board members are responsible for the general management and oversight of the affairs of the Association, including its finances, organization, programs and positions.
Members in good standing that wish to serve as a Director should carefully review the By Laws document and complete the online CANDIDATE NOMINATION FORM.
