The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is pleased to announce that SCCM Council supported and approved the Emergency Medicine Section and the Neuroscience Section each being considered for a designated seat on SCCM Council. As a result, an amendment to the SCCM bylaws will be drafted and presented to the SCCM membership for a vote prior to SCCM’s 2015 Critical Care Congress. If the bylaw revision is accepted by the SCCM membership, the Emergency Medicine Section and the Neuroscience Section will each have a Designated Seat on SCCM Council beginning in 2016.
The Society strongly urges all members to participate in the election this fall. A strong turnout by the sections will be essential for an electoral victory.
