The obvious reason is financial - pay all of your national dues now - at today's rate - and never have to worry about paying your national dues again. Especially as dues rates inevitably go up. But there are other things to consider as well. Whether you're a relatively new midwife or 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 find yourself in or closer to retirement, you may also find that you've found precious time as well. regardless of where you are in your midwifery career, people want to learn from you. So, here are a few thoughts on how you may choose to spend some of your valuable time while staying engaged with ACNM (and we would be the better for it!):
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!
Senior midwives have often expressed the desire to affordably remain active in ACNM and continue contributing to the future of midwifery. We definitely heard you, and have designed a national membership rate that you can pay once and never have to worry about national dues again! ACNM is honored to offer this to midwives, 65 and older, who have given so much of themselves and their career to midwifery. If you qualify for this category, we hope that you will take advantage of this offer. We value your wisdom and expertise and hope this helps you stay actively engaged for life with full voting privileges at an affordable rate!
We?ve cut the current Active-Life rate in half as our thanks to you, and you now only pay $2,738!
Take advantage of this specially-priced Active-Life membership rate, keep all the benefits of full, voting active membership and let your voice be heard - for life!
