It may be Groundhog Day, but this is not a repeat post. We really do have another winner in the EMS Today Conference blogger promotion contest. OnceÂ again, it is my privilege to announce aÂ winner who used the HPEMS promo code. PennWell Corporation, the sponsor of the Fire EMS Blogs network, has been kind enough to allow their bloggers to provide a promotional code offering discounts on Gold and Silver registrations for the EMS Today conference later this month. Using the code from any of the bloggers, gave the registrant an instant discount along with an opportunity to be entered in a monthly drawing. I announced the firstÂ winner hereÂ last monthÂ and now I have the privilege toÂ congratulateÂ Katherine Rodriguez as the final winner of an Apple iPad Mini that she can pick up at the PennWell booth during the conference. I have tried to contact her without any reply yet. So, if you know her, please extend the announcement to her.
There was another part to this contest, however, that I can now disclose and itÂ was to choose the official EMS Today Conference Blogger. The email notification came yesterday, and I am excited to have been chosen to fill that position following in the footsteps of my friend Tom Bouthillet of EMS 12-Lead who performedÂ that role last year. My plans are to attend the conference starting on Wednesday and I will post a blog each day highlighting the events that happened. Whether you attend the conference or not, I hope you will share this experience with me and check back each day in order to learn about what is happening there and how it may impact our industry. If you are in attendance, please watch for me. I typically sport the HP-EMS logo and I would love to meet you and hear aboutÂ your impressions of the conference.
Travel safe (whether you will be in Baltimore or not), Dale
