ACME is supported by a national pool of volunteers made up of midwives, midwifery education professionals, and members of the public ensuring that midwifery programs are evaluated by their peers. ACME volunteers play a critical role in the midwifery education accreditation process. In return for their donation of time and expertise, volunteers receive the opportunity to learn from their colleagues, gain a broader understanding of the midwifery education environment, and contribute to continuous improvement in the midwifery education accreditation system. Volunteers receive no honorarium or other form of compensation; however, they are provided reimbursed for the travel expenses they incur and a daily per diem to off set food expenses in compliance with the ACME Policies and Procedures Manual.
Application process for all opportunities: Please send in a current curriculum vita (CV), letter of inquiry or cover letter detailing experience and qualifications, and two letters of recommendation. Letters of reference may not be from ACME volunteers (Board of Commissioners, Board of Review, Site Visitor Panel and ACME Advisory Committee) and staff. The Board of Commissioners will appoint all positions.
Current Volunteer Opportunities include:
