About the EMF Board

The EMF Board has four representational members nominated by ACEM who typically serve from one to three years. Two of the four ACEM representatives must be based in Queensland and two must be a FACEM. Interstate and regional candidates are also encouraged to submit an EOI.

EMF strives for diversity amongst its Board members. Clinicians actively providing care in an emergency department or retrieval service are preferred and may be based in public, private or not-for-profit organisations.

In a new initiative, ACEM is open to supporting one representational Board member from nursing, paramedicine or allied health who has an active clinical role in emergency healthcare (emergency department or retrievals).

Meetings are held in Brisbane every second month and attendance may be in person or via audio-visual links. These Board roles are not remunerated although travel costs may be covered.

How to apply

The EMF Board Nomination – ACEM approved EOI contains further information about how to apply. Closing 5.00pm AEST Monday 31 August 2020.
