EDPMA, a trade association, is governed under its bylaws by an elected Board of Directors. An important tenet of EDPMA’s governance structure is that every Board member receives one vote, irrespective of the size or member category of the organization they represent.
EDPMA Committees do the heavy lifting for the organization and focus on the legislative, regulatory, quality, coding, documentation and practice management for the organization and the emergency medicine specialty. Learn more about our committees here.
