Why a Life Membership?
As a senior midwife who may be approaching retirement (or is retired), you possess an invaluable wealth of knowledge and expertise that other midwives would love to learn from. As you enter retirement, you will likely be adding precious time as well. While many have said that there is so much more to do in retirement, they love that they now have more choice in how to remain busy. So, here are a few thoughts on how you may choose to spend your valuable time staying involved with ACNM (and we would be the better for it!):
Mentor - share what you've learned!
We are developing a mentor program that will collect information from those who want to mentor and match them to those who need a mentor. As a life member of ACNM, you will be an invaluable resource to midwives – especially students and new midwives around the country!
Volunteering and Leadership
There are many state and national opportunities for volunteering and leadership positions with ACNM. You can lend your expertise to several open national positions listed on our “Volunteer Opportunities” page. You could also let your affiliate know that you are interested in opportunities at the local level, like helping out with state advocacy issues.
