The deadline to submit resolutions for the 2011 American College of Emergency Physicians Council meeting is rapidly approaching.
College members who would like the Council to consider a resolution, which includes background information and a proposed course of action, must submit the material by e-mail, fax, or U.S. mail by July 16.
Each resolution must be submitted by at least two College members. In the case of a chapter or section, a letter of endorsement from the president or chair of the sponsoring body must accompany the resolution.
When writing a resolution, there is a general format to follow. Guidelines can be found at www.ACEP.org, in the Leadership area of the “About Us” section, along with a helpful article, “Make a Difference: Write that Council Resolution.”
Receipt of resolutions will be acknowledged by e-mail or phone. If you have questions, please contact Sonja Montgomery at ACEP headquarters, 800-798-1822, ext. 3202.
The 2011 resolutions to be considered will be publically posted 30 days before the Council meeting. This year’s meeting is scheduled for Oct. 13 and 14, prior to ACEP’s Scientific Assembly in San Francisco.
