Congratulations, Chiefs Mellow and Sandbeck!
IAEMSC Director at Large Randy Mellow was recently elected as the President of the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada. We are so excited for Chief Mellow to earn this prestigious honor, as it is a testament to his leadership and commitment to EMS. Our relationship with the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada is as strong as it has ever been and having Chief Mellow as the President will hopefully only strengthen it.
Per the IAEMSC bylaws, a member of the board may not serve in an officer capacity of in any other national organization related to a functional area of EMS while serving as an elected officer of IAEMSC thus removing any perception of conflict. As such, Chief Mellow has resigned his position as a Director At Large. I have appointed, with approval of the Board of Directors, Chief Darren Sandbeck, long-time IAEMSC supporter and Senior Provincial Director/Chief Paramedic for Alberta Health Services EMS, to fill Chief Mellow’s seat for the remainder of his term. Please welcome Chief Sandbeck to your Board of Directors.
