Board of Directors

The EMRA Board of Directors is the governing body of the organization which is made up of 11 individuals who are elected by their peers while completing their residency. Three additional positions on the Board are filled by a medical student representative, Ex-Officio, and a liaison to the ACGME RC-EM. Members of the Board offer governance and strategic direction to the organization. Board of Directors members are elected by the Rep Council and serve two to three year terms. They interact and communicate between the various other organizations, both within, and outside of the field of emergency medicine.
