2023 GEMSA providers & Educators Conference
October 15-18, 2023
Preconference Options: Oct. 15 & 16
The Georgia EMS Association encourages you to come to join us at the beach for the 37th 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.
NEW Features for 2023
For 2023, the Georgia EMS Association has made a few changes to our conference. Below are the highlights:
1) NO VIRTUAL OPTION IN 2023
THIS CONFERENCE WILL NOT BE OFFERED VIRTUALLY THIS FALL. THE ONLY OPTION TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE IS IN-PERSON. We encourage everyone to join us on Jekyll Island for some time away to relax and recharge, while you attend educational sessions for continuing education hours, learn about the latest and greatest products and services in EMS, and network with new and old friends. Our pre-cons offer hands-on and interactive sessions while the regular conference days offer general sessions, and tracks for instructors, providers, and nurses.
The regular conference days are Monday-Wednesday, so feel free to come down the weekend before or stay a few days after to enjoy all the island has to offer. Most hotel block rates are valid before and after our conference dates.
2) NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH GEORGIA EMERGENCY NURSES ASSOCIATION (ENA)
This year, GEMSA is partnering with Georgia ENA to provide continuing education for nurses throughout the conference. Nursing hours will be available throughout the regular conference days, and new this year, ENA is offering a special nursing track on Tuesday, October 17 for nurses and EMS professionals to attend. There will be limited space in these sessions. Nurses can register for the entire conference or a single day on Tuesday to attend the nursing track. We look forward to joining forces and providing quality education for healthcare professionals, and we hope you will join us in welcoming the nurses to our conference. The nursing track sessions are still in development and will be updated in this brochure as information is available.
