Committee Meeting Schedule Changes

We are pleased to announce that we have revised our Committee meeting schedules as well as added some new committees and new chair persons. Committees will meet quarterly and the next meetings will be held (virtually) throughout July. If you want to get involved with shaping the future of our industry in South Carolina, pick a committee or committees that interest you and come see what we are doing! These Committees are truly the driving force behind our progress and we are excited to work on the issues facing our profession. 

Listed below are the upcoming meeting dates and times along with a small sampling of the focus of the committees. You can contact the chair(s) of any committees via our website ( or myself with any questions.

EMS Memorial Bike Ride/Honor Guard- More information will be forthcoming. 


Following feedback from our membership and leadership retreat, our meeting schedules will now be quarterly. This allows time for the committees and the Board of Directors to meet as well as avoids redundancies in scheduling. The new meeting schedules take effect on July 1st and will follow the schedule outlined below. 

July-Committees meet. (Next meeting in October) 

August- SCEMSA Board of Directors Meeting (Next meeting in November)

September 16th (3rd Thursday) @ 1:00, SCEMSA Membership meeting (Next Meeting in December). Note, the meeting date was changed to the Third Thursday to avoid conflicts with the EMS Advisory Council which meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Meeting reminders, agendas, in person and virtual options will be emailed in advance of the scheduled meetings. 

Meetings will follow this quarterly rotation unless a situation arises which requires more frequent engagement or adjustment for holidays. We are working to update the website to display meeting dates and upcoming events. 

Thank you in advance for your continued support.
