KEMSA Educational Opportunities for 2020
The KEMSA Board is working diligently to be able to provide EMS education to our membership and providers across the state despite in-person events being cancelled in 2020. We have been working with national and local educators on ideas and plans to provide virtual high quality education. We understand time and budgets are limited, so we are focused on providing cost-effective and self-paced education that you can complete on your own time from your location. As the future is uncertain, we feel this is the best way to present education at this time.
Here is what we are working on:
Some of these opportunities will be rolled out over the next 30-60 days, so stay tuned for complete details. Make sure to keep your membership current to be able to take advantage of the discounted and free education we will be offering this year.
As of now, we are making plans for in-person events to return in 2021. If things change this fall, so will our plans. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this time.
KEMSA is a professional membership organization and does not regulate the EMS profession in Kansas.
KEMSA is proud that we have members in all 6 regions in Kansas with members located in 90 of the 105 counties in Kansas and five other states. About 85% of the services in Kansas have a service membership with KEMSA. KEMSA has more than 100 active service memberships, which represents more than 5,000 certified EMS attendants working within Kansas EMS agencies, and more than 2,000 active individual memberships.

Per the KEMSA bylaws, an annual meeting shall be held at a time and place to be determined by the Board of Directors.
Since the conference has been cancelled for 2020, the Board of Directors has decided to hold the annual meeting electronically via zoom on August 14, 2020 at 10 am.
At said annual meeting, the President shall report to the Members the state of the Association. There will be no action items at this meeting, and it will be pretty short as most activities in 2020 have been cancelled due to the pandemic.
Please consider this your official notice and invitation to the meeting. If you would like to attend via zoom, you may register here. Please register by Aug. 11 if you want to attend.
