Annual PA Delegation to ACEP Council
Each year, the PACEP Board of Directors appoints PACEP members who will represent the chapter at the ACEP Council.
A councillor/alternate councillor is a key participant in the leadership and development of ACEP policy and has the responsibility to voice the concerns of their (Pennsylvania) constituents on the floor of the Council meeting and in reference committees. Councillors can also express the will of their constituents by voting for or against resolutions and electing board members and Council officers.
Councillors and alternates will be a part of PACEP’s resolution planning and writing efforts, discussion of and response to all other resolutions selected for review at the Council meeting, and onsite PA Delegation events.
