2021 GEMSA Providers & educators Conference - see you there.

The Georgia EMS Association encourages you to come to join us at the beach for the 35th Annual GEMSA Providers & Educators Conference. We believe you are going to find the educational experience at this conference to be both enjoyable and rewarding. In addition, we hope you take advantage of some of the great features Jekyll Island has to offer.

This event is still moving forward as an in-person event. The GEMSA Board is continuing to track data and will be meeting weekly to assess the situation.  Please review considerations below and the strategies we will be implementing in order to ensure the safety of our attendees.

As of 9/13/21, the plans for the conference include:

  1. The board highly recommends masks for activities indoors and distancing as much as possible no matter your vaccination status. The room setups will allow for distancing as much as possible.
  2. Sanitation efforts will include the convention center following CDC guidelines for serving food, hand sanitizer stations, and sanitizing meeting spaces with Bioesque products between sessions.
  3. If you feel sick, stay home.  If you have the symptoms of COVID-19 and/or any variant, please stay home.  All COVID cancellations after Sept. 29 will be reviewed by the board on a case by case basis. All requests can be sent to Mary Napier

Georgia Retirement Plan

The Georgia EMS Association has partnered with financial service partners and PointeNorth Insurance Group to assist in the development of a Georgia EMS Retirement Fund.  This has been in the works for some time and significant progress has been made.

The biggest obstacle that we face right now for creating a Georgia EMS Retirement Plan is the low number of EMS association members in relation to the total number of EMS professionals in Georgia. Actuaries are structuring the plan so that only members of the Georgia EMS Association will be eligible for the Pension. In order for the actuaries to begin creating the framework for the financing of the pension fund, the membership level needs to be at a minimum of 10,000. Increasing membership in the association is the first step in achieving the goal of creating an EMS Pension for Georgia. This is a goal that can only be achieved with the cooperation of the entire EMS Community of Georgia.  View more information here.
