The Society for Academic Emergency Medicine announced that the board of directors had voted unanimously to extend the contract of CEO Megan Schagrin through 2028. Schagrin joined SAEM in June 2015 from the American College of Chest Physicians.
“I consider negotiating an extended contract with Ms. Schagrin one my most important contributions to the Society,” President Ian B.K. Martin said in a statement. “By doing so, we have helped ensure the long-term health, growth and relevance of the association.”
SAEM cited multiple achievements during Schagrin’s tenure, including growth in membership and revenue, and overhauling the group’s website, branding and publications.
