Welcome to the homepage of the International Association of Flight & Critical Care Paramedics.  It is an honor for me to serve as your 2017-2018 Association President.  Our membership is our primary concern, and I will do serve each and every one of you to the best of my ability. 

Education has always been of paramount importance to this Association, and to me in particular.  We are quickly moving into a new era of paramedicine.  In this new phase, the expectation, especially in the flight, critical care, and community settings, will be for paramedics to leave behind the role of technician, and enter that of being a clinician.  As expectations and cognitive requirements continue to rise, education will become more and more important moving forward. 

Another primary consideration of your Association is that of advocacy.  The IAFCCP remains a voice for the specialty care paramedic at all levels of government and policy.  We currently have representatives in local and state jurisdictions as well as on federal and international boards and commissions.  It is our responsibility to you to ensure that the voice of the specialty care paramedic is heard and considered alongside those of our EMS counterparts. 

We have a number of exciting initiatives planned for this year.  We want to continue to focus on membership engagement.  To that end, please feel free to reach out to me, any member of your Board of Directors, or your State Delegate with any topic you feel to be requiring our attention.  At the end of the day, I, as well as the other officers of the Association, work for you, the membership.

                                                                                                                              Kindest regards,

Aaron W. Byrd, DHSc, MPA, NRP, FP-C

24th IAFCCP President
