ACME seeks to have diverse representation on all of its volunteer Boards and encourages members of the Midwives of Color, CMs, Men, Veterans, LGBTQIA2S+, other historically underrepresented groups and individuals to apply. In addition, we like to diversify by location and also seek qualified applicants living in West, Midwest and rural areas to apply. And, ALL eligible applicants are encouraged to apply. ACME is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees and volunteers.
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.
