Council & Standing Committees

Council Profile

Board of Directors

The Council’s Board of Directors is composed of individuals from the North Central Region who represent a cross section of EMS expertise and individuals whose activities are significantly affected by regional EMS policies. The Board meets biannually to review the activities of the Council and ratify the actions of the Executive Committee. In addition, Board Members regularly provide input to the Council Staff.


The Board of Directors currently includes representation in the following categories: local government, EMS providers (commercial and volunteer), health professionals (physician, nursing and administration), fire protection, law enforcement, higher education, planning agencies and consumers. Although most interest groups are adequately represented in the Board membership, the Council maintains a policy of encouraging membership for anyone who feels under represented and is willing to make an active contribution to the development of regional EMS.
