Earlier this year, the American Ambulance Association (AAA) elected its board of directors to begin terms in 2023. Among those elected are Acadian Ambulance Chief Legal Officer Allyson Pharr and Regional Vice President Ron Quaranto.

Pharr will serve as the Region 4 Director for three years, and Quaranto will represent Region 4 on the Ethics Committee for a four-year term. Region 4 spans Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. In addition, Quaranto will serve as chair of the Workforce Committee.

“I am excited and honored to help AAA members in ensuring we all remain compliant and ethical in the work that we do for the patients we serve,” Quaranto said.

Pharr said, “I am energized to continue my work with AAA as a member of the Board of Directors. We have a wonderful group of diverse advocates that I look forward to working with and learning from to ensure that our industry voice is heard and we have a ‘seat at the table’ as we navigate new challenges and hopeful opportunities.”

She continued, “Over the last decade, we have built essential relationships with our state delegations, as well as committees of jurisdiction over our industry, and we will continue to work tirelessly to continue to educate our leaders and promote EMS and the lifesaving services we provide everyday as an essential part of community well-being and success.”
