KEMSA Wants to Recognize Those Who Have Made a Significant Contribution to EMS

KEMSA's annual awards are a way for KEMSA to honor both individuals and organizations who have made a significant contribution to the EMS profession in the past year, and nominations are open.

Starting in 2017, we have modeled our awards and nomination forms off the National EMS Awards so that KEMSA's winners can be easily nominated for national EMS awards the following year if applicable. We have also added a military medic award based on the national EMS award.

Award nominees will be honored at the KEMSA "Honoring Our Own" Awards Banquet in Mulvane, KS Aug. 12, 2017 in conjunction with the Annual KEMSA Conference.  Please take time to nominate those deserving EMS professionals across the state for these prestigious awards.  The nomination deadline is June 15, 2017. See the award categories and submit your nomination online here.

Notice of KEMSA Bylaws Changes - 2.22.17

The KEMSA Bylaws Committee has worked with an attorney over the past year in order to finalize a set of bylaws for the Kansas Emergency Medical Services Association that fits how the association legally needs and wants to operate and to clarify the roles and responsibilities of the members, the board of directors, and the executive committee officers.

In order to adopt the new bylaws approved by the Board of Directors, we need the membership to vote on the changes. This is your 30-day notice of the changes. Voting will be done electronically and you will receive an electronic ballot on March 24. Voting will be open for one week from March 24-31.

To view the changes and a complete set of bylaws, view our bylaws page here.
