    The trajectory of COVID-19 infection has continued in the wrong direction week after week.  With no clear change in course for the near future, the board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 84th SMEMSIC Professional Development Conference.

    The pandemic has stressed our organizations in ways few of us could have predicted.  Instructor/coordinators are often leaned upon to identify problems and offer solutions.  Your role impacts our providers’ approach to the stressful prehospital work environment.  Thank you for your commitment to keeping EMS providers armed with the knowledge, skills, and equipment to care for those that have called for emergency medical services.

    Great progress has been made in the pandemic mitigation efforts since we canceled the 83rd PDC.  The Board is optimistic of the continued progress in treatment and prevention of the novel coronavirus infection.  On behalf of the SMEMSIC Board, let me extend our warmest of healthy holiday wishes.  We look forward to seeing you once again in the fall of 2021.

    Every fall, I look forward to connecting with our EMS educator community in Lansing at our conference. Given the concerns around COVID-19, and the Executive Orders issued by Governor suspending and/or significantly restricting activities involving large gatherings, as well as the services provided by hotels, restaurants and bars, the board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 83rd SMEMSIC Professional Development Conference.

    Professional development is incredibly important, however the health and safety of our members, staff, and the communities we each serve must remain our priority. The SMEMSIC board members are committed to our organizational goals and will explore alternative delivery models to provide continuing education to our members.

    Your community role as an EMS educator will significantly contribute to the re-opening of our state. I am optimistic Michigan residents will continue to follow disease mitigation efforts. The SMEMSIC Board of Directors will continue to monitor conditions within the state as we approach our annual educational spring conference in 2021.
