Representative Council

The EMRA Representative Council is comprised of members representing their co-residents who discuss issues relating to EM residency training and adopt policies affecting their professional development, practice, patients or speciality.

The Representative Council is led by two Council Officers. They preside over Council meetings, organize Council activities, serve as the ex-officio chairs of all Representative Council Committees, and represent the membership to the Board of Directors.
