“ACEP’s new strategic plan is purposefully member-focused, with a goal to be the organization all members, at every stage of their career, look to for meaning, passion and solutions,” Dr. Anderson said. “It seemed there was a wealth of experience and knowledge in this [at or nearing retirement] group that was going untapped. The potential members not only can mentor a younger set, but as their mantra goes, they can remain relevant. Plus, our group has shared decades in the same orbit, truly desired its own forum to solve its own unique challenges.”

Dr. Anderson said that ACEP members near retirement are facing a variety of lifestyle questions as they start to move on from the emergency department. From finances to alternative jobs, health issues, travel and hobbies, there is much for the group to discuss as they seek to find purpose in this new phase of their career and life. The group was able to meet for the first time during ACEP22 in San Francisco.
