EMSAAC wishes to acknowledge the generous contributions by our Sponsors, Exhibitors, Speakers and Attendees to the success of our Annual Conference in Coronado. In the spirit of our theme, "Adapting to Sea-Change", conference speakers challenged us to prepare for shifting "winds and currents" in EMS that are being driven by innovative research, changing funding models, portable technology, emerging scopes of practice, evolving standards of care, healthcare reform, and real-life multiple patient incidents. Many of our speakers' presentations have now been placed on our website here: Conference Presentations.

Special thanks to our Conference Committee working together under the leadership of Mike Petrie to create a valuable and informative forum. Loews Coronado Bay Resort was a wonderful venue, and our conference planners have already reserved it for next year's conference.
