NYC Midwives is membership organization of midwives residing and/or working in New York City. We aim to support midwives and the practice of midwifery, while increasing visibility of and access to midwifery care in our city. NYC Midwives has historically been one of the largest and most active chapters in the country. The membership as a whole typically meets four times a year, runs together at our annual fundraiser Miles for Midwives, and celebrates at our annual Holiday Party every December. Other, non-recurring activities and events are organized by chapter leadership and membership. The Chapter is lead by the Executive Committee, which is comprised of an elected Chair or Co-Chairs, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. Elections for Chair or Co-Chairs and Treasurer occur every two years in the odd-numbered years. Elections for Vice Chair and Secretary are also held every two years, though in the even-numbered years. The Nominating Committee is comprised of five elected members, and is responsible for finding candidates and running the elections each spring. Additional committees manage chapter projects, maintenance and activities. Follow the links to join the chapter or to get involved in chapter activities.
