Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association
MEMSA is a nonprofit, statewide, professional association committed to high quality emergency medical services across Missouri.
Since 1983, MEMSA has provided leadership in education, training, and legislation.
MEMSA provides a forum for EMS professionals to accomplish common goals that ensure quality EMS care is delivered statewide. MEMSA members are invited to be involved in collaborative efforts to achieve these and other goals.
MEMSA Bylaws Changes
July 30, we will install newly elected Board Members and elect new officers to lead the Association. Bylaw revisions are being considered at that meeting as well. Most of the changes were to bring clarity and to reorganize some of the sections to more appropriate areas. There are only two issues that are different in the proposed bylaws: adding an immediate past president position to the Executive Board and changing the elected terms from 3 years to 4 years. Both of these changes are being proposed to provide continuity for the Association as we include new members and elect new officers.
If you would like, you may attend the July 30 meeting at the Rock Quarry House 2002 Grindstone Parkway, Columbia, MO, 65203. The meeting will start at 10 am. Please note there is no internet access at the Rock Quarry House. Let Ruby know if you will be attending so we have enough paper copies, chairs etc.

Medicaid Expansion in Missouri -
It is with deep regret that we inform you of the cancellation of the Missouri EMS Conference & Expo that was to be held July 28-31, 2020 at the Margaritaville Resort in Osage Beach, Mo. The Missouri EMS Conference Board has been monitoring COVID-19 related developments and the impact on our hospitals and EMS agencies over the past several weeks and felt this was the best decision for all involved. We'll see you in 2021!
MEMSA has created a new COVID-19 resource page at memsa.org/COVID-19, which provides links to national and state entities, resources regarding PPE and N95 masks, online training, and more.
We will use this page as a place to update and post relevant information rather than filling up your inbox. The COVID-19 resource page will be periodically updated to add the latest information and link to the most current guidance from the CDC and other agencies. If you have a resource you think we need to include, please contact us.
