As a supervisor, haven’t you wondered what the issues are with social networking in the workplace? Have you ever wondered about medications that get diverted and what you can do about it? How do you move from the ambulance to a supervisor position?

These and other questions will be discussed at the upcoming South Carolina EMS Leadership Conference, to be held on Folly Beach (Charleston, SC) Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2011.

Speakers include Dr. Jay Fitch, President of Fitch and Associates, Dr. Dennis O’Neil, Superintendant of the National Fire Academy, Attorney Caroline Cleveland, Brent Meadows, NREMT-P, Aimin Alton, MICP, John Todaro, RN, EMT-P plus many others.

This conference is targeted towards new and current shift supervisors and administrators. Although a little theory is discussed, most of the tools given are real, practical items that can be taken back to your agency and used to improve the leadership of the organization.

One of the favorite classes is an “ask the expert,” where a majority of speakers convene and take questions from the audience on various current issues going on in the participants’ agencies.

A special pre-conference is the NAEMT Safety Course, the first one ever taught in South Carolina. This first-ever offered program is a must for any safety officer or supervisor in charge of ensuring your personnel are as safe as they can be in the workplace.

Lunch on both days, as well as dinner Friday night are included in the price of registration. “At many of these venues, students lost valuable time hunting for a meal they could afford, “Don Lundy, co-chair of the event said. “We wanted to give them a value and use their time effectively.”

The conference is sponsored by the South Carolina EMS Association and offers an opportunity for leaders to have tremendous networking possibilities, while staying in a relaxed and very affordable arena.

The conference will be held at the Tides Hotel (formerly the Holiday Inn) on Folly Beach. Hotel rates are only $169 for a beach front room.
