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 forms of compensation; however, they are provided reimbursed for the travel expenses they incur and a daily per diem to offset food expenses in compliance with the ACME Policies and Procedures Manual.
