To all our EMs Professionals,
As most of you have experienced over the past 2 years, this has been a challenging time for emergency medical services, both professionally and personally.
Many of you have lost loved ones, homes, and employment due to COVID, devastating hurricanes, and other industry hardships. There have been many challenges in our lives.
However, with strength and resilience, we will overcome the challenges and rise stronger than ever. “EMS Rising to the Challenge”!
These challenges have made it difficult to provide for networking and continuing education through LANREMT, but there is a positive light at the end of the tunnel.
There will be an EMS Educational Conference in 2022!
The LANREMT Board of Directors would like to share the Good News: The Board will be hosting three pivotal events this year as we come together in unity with our EMS Colleagues- the Louisiana Bureau of EMS (BEMS), Louisiana Ambulance Alliance (The Alliance) and the Louisiana Emergency Response Network (LERN).
The Alliance has offered to host these events at their new complex in St. Gabriel, Louisiana.
On Friday, June 24th, 18:00, the LANREMT Board of Directors will hold their annual meeting and elections of the executive committee officers at 3695 Bank Drive, St. Gabriel, La., 70776.
On Saturday, June 25th, 10:00, the LANREMT First Annual Membership Drive with a “Lunch and Learn” will be held at 3695 Bank Drive, St. Gabriel, La., 70776.
This first membership drive with a Lunch and Learn, will include the affirmation of new members, the General Membership, Chapter and Society elections, and OUTSTANDING continuing educational offerings (4 hours minimum).
WE WANT TO SEE YOU THERE!
Here’s your chance to make a difference and be your best for EMS.
LANREMT will update the General Membership on the “behind the scenes” activities that we have sponsored and/or participated in during the past 2 years on your behalf.
There will be ratification of the Board and nominations for four (4) at-large positions to be voted upon by the general memberships, as well as presidential appointees and EMS liaisons.
If you are interested in a board position, elected or appointed, please contact the current president, Terry Blanchard, firstname.lastname@example.org, for details.
This year, due to some of the hardships we have muddled through, LANREMT is waving the 2022 dues. So, all attendees will be considered members until January 2023.
Oh, did we mention that there will be no charge to attend?
RSVP BY 6/20/2022
EMS Educational Conference 2022
The last but hopefully the BEST will be the EMS Educational Conference to be held in later 2022. Many new speakers have been selected to present, along with some of our most favored returnees and Louisiana’s Best for an exciting and educational two (2) day event.
Preparations are in the works to include NREMT NCCP continuing educational offerings, meals, and social activities as well as a Vendor Hall and great door prizes.
We are looking forward to seeing you there, helping us grow the association. As usual, this will be a family-centered event so bring yours to enjoy the local surroundings with us.
The cost for the LANREMT 2022 Educational Conference will be minimal this year to cover expenses. $ 100.00, is our goal to maximize attendance and networking.
We hope you are as excited as we are about these positive announcements and look forward to seeing you at all of the events.
If you are tired of the online, non-interactive educational offerings and looking for live, face-to-face continuing educational offerings with fellowship and networking, then this is the place to be!
For more information on membership or registering for these events, please go to the website, LANREMT.com, or contact us at, email@example.com, before June 20, 2022.
LANREMT's mission is the enhancement of the EMS profession through advocacy, education and awareness. Founded in 1976, LANREMT works with many EMS associations in Louisiana to strengthen the EMS System and to ensure quality patient care. LANREMT is the state affiliate of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians, NREMT, and is a member of the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, NAEMT.
LANREMT is the only statewide voice for more than 20,000 EMS personnel in Louisiana. Only about 20% of the 20,000 plus emergency medical personnel in Louisiana work full-time as EMS providers. The remaining 80% are members of volunteer rescue squads in their community or workplace. It is through the support of corporations and other caring individuals that LANREMT is able to continue working to improve EMS in Louisiana.
LANREMT members sit on every major E.M.S. board and task force, working to improve EMS in Louisiana. Some of the many committees are: The Education Sub-Committee, The Clinical Care Sub-Committee, The Communications Sub-Committee, The Disaster Sub-Committee, The EMS Terrorism Preparedness Sub-Committee, LERN and The EMS Task Force.
LANREMT sponsors a statewide educational conference. Each year we bring in speakers from around the country. Select "Annual Conference" for more information. LANREMT members receive a discount on their conference registration fee. Many of our chapters sponsor local workshops and refresher courses.
LANREMT maintains a Facebook page and it is there you will find the most timely and up-to-date information on our activities.
