Emergency Medicine Assembly
Ohio ACEP EM Assembly postponed due to COVID-19 concerns
After careful consideration of the growing concerns and travel restrictions related to the spread of COVID-19, the Ohio ACEP Board of Directors has voted to postpone the March 17 Ohio ACEP EM Assembly and Annual Meeting. Our primary consideration in making this difficult decision is to help ensure the safety and health of attendees and staff. The event will be rescheduled for 2021, and we will let our members know when a date has been set.
We thank you for your understanding and urge you to keep an eye out for additional announcements, including a date for the rescheduled EM Assembly.
The Ohio ACEP EM Assembly combines the very best in medical education, physician advocacy, and leadership topics to empower you to advance your career and take on the biggest challenges in emergency medicine—all while providing plenty of time to meet EM leaders and catch up with colleagues.

In light of the Ohio ACEP EM Assembly and Annual Meeting being indefinitely postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, the Ohio ACEP Board of Directors authorized moving the Chapter's 2020 Annual Elections from in-person voting a secure, virtual vote. After voting had concluded, Tyler Hill, DO, FACEP, Daniel Martin, MD, MBA, FACEP, and John Queen, MD, FACEP were re-elected to three-year terms on the Ohio ACEP Board of Directors.
