|Committee on Advocacy|
Chair: John Surface, Board Liaison: Charles Blankenship
This group is responsible for advocating NEMSMA’s positions and opinions on all aspects of the paramedicine profession, including production of position papers, interaction with governmental agencies and legislatures, as well as liaison activities with other professional and trade associations or groups. Most of the work over the last year has been as individual members of the team participating in State and National advocacy in California, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. We were well represented by the committee members and other NEMSMA board members at the EMS on the Hill Day.
