SEMI Members Communication – Postponement of EMCON 2020 due to Covid-19
Dear SEMI Member
Greetings from SEMI
We hope you are all keeping safe in this pandemic times and appreciations to all members of SEMI who are the front liners in this fight against pandemic.
This year has been tough for all of us and many of our plans have to be put on hold or cancelled and we hope the situation improves soon in the coming months.
As you all know that the lock down and Disaster Act is in force across India, we are forced to postpone our annual national emergency medicine conference EMCON 2020. We will reassess the situation in February 2021 to plan a hybrid event based on the situation which will also help with our elections for board positions.
During this time we will continue to strengthen our membership drive and we hereby request all SEMI members who have not received their membership number/card to apply to get your card/number (with proof of membership fee paid).
All CCT EM students of the 2020-2023 batch, their fees included SEMI membership and they need not pay for membership separately.
Since the SEMI board elections are due this year, based on the SEMI constitution guidelines, it is decided by the executive chair and the board to postpone the elections by 3 months and hold the SEMI board elections in February 2021. The present board will continue in the interim period.
We are getting back on track with our second collaborative event with IFEM in 2020, the International E-journal clud this November for all EM trainees in India. We encourage all of you to actively participate in this E-meet. The registration is complimentary for all SEMI members.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy.
For the SEMI National Board
Dr. S. Saravana Kumar
National General Secretary
