NASEMSO Annual Meeting June 19-23, 2022

NASEMSO is excited to resume convening in-person for the Annual Meeting in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, June 19-23, 2022.  The heightened learning and camaraderie that result from meeting face-to-face have been sorely missed during the pandemic and will be welcomed by members and other attendees. (Note: there will not be an option to attend the meeting remotely.) The NASEMSO Annual Meeting is especially designed for the maximum benefit of its primary members who are key personnel in state offices of EMS. It is also an ideal venue for federal, association, and business partners whose mission relates to emergency medical services, specialty systems of care (trauma, stroke, STEMI, overdose), disaster preparedness and related matters.

NASEMSO will conform to facility, local and state COVID requirements. Unless one or more of these authorities change current mandates, masking is optional, and proof of vaccination is not required. Persons concerned about infection should use an at-home rapid antigen self-test kit or public testing facility.
