Interested in Joining the MAWS Board of Directors? Want to Nominate Another Midwife or Consumer?


The next MAWS Conference and Annual Meeting is coming up November 22nd. A few members of our current Board of Directors will be running for re-election, and we'd like to invite you to consider joining us as well. The work is fun, inspiring and satisfying!


Board members take an active role in the work of MAWS. The Board typically meets once per month. Most meetings are in the Seattle area, though members can call in to meetings--so it is possible to join from a distance. Board members are expected to participate in committee work.


The MAWS Board has recently tightened up our nominations process, and our nominations committee has developed some fabulous documents for you to better understand the commitment you will make as a member of the board, as well as descriptions of at-large member and officer positions. Please note also our statements on diversity and consumers as executive officers.

If you're interested in getting on this fall's ballot, please email your name and bio (or that of a colleague, with their permission). Board members must be active members of MAWS--whether professional or consumers.


Nominations must be received by Friday, September 25, 2012.
