Conference Committees

Listed are the roles of the various Representative Council Committees. These committees are a great way to get involved, to see how EMRA operates and to network. Be sure to ask for clarification if you are unsure about the position, and what is expected of you. Please remember that all members of Representative Council Committees are expected to act professionally, as you are representing EMRA and the Representative Council.

These committees help us run operations and only exist for the duration of the conference.
