In the ACNM 2012 Elections: A Presidential Year
It’s election season again, and 2012 is going to be an eventful year, not just for the US presidential election, but also for the ACNM presidential election! Here’s what you need to know:
- Get to know the candidates. Visit www.midwife.org/acnm-elections to read detailed biographical information and responses to the candidate question from candidates for president, secretary, region IV representative, region V representative, and Nominating Committee members.
- Visit the online election forum through February 3. The forum is where candidates and ACNM members can interact. Candidates are available to answer questions, and you may read their answer to your and other members’ concerns. Student members can also access the forum and ask questions! Plus, hear audio interviews of presidential candidates Ginger Breedlove, CNM, and Barbara Hughes, CNM.
- Cast your vote February 6–March 5. Members who have an e-mail address on file at ACNM will receive an e-mail in January with a link to the secure electronic ballot. All other members will be mailed voting instructions.
To find out how ACNM decides who to nominate as candidates, check out the Nominating Committee’s FAQ at www.midwife.org/elections, which covers how candidates are chosen, how you can nominate a candidate, and how you can get involved and run for office.
