Message from the President

Coming soon: CNMA Election!

Our CNMA Election is happening NEXT MONTH! That’s right, in just a few short weeks, our ballot will go out to all CNMA members and you’ll have the opportunity to vote for your next CNMA President. But first, we need some candidates! I’ve said this before, but I’m not afraid of saying it again. WE NEED YOU!

If you’ve ever thought about serving on the CNMA Board of Directors but were worried you might not have what it takes, believe me when I say you are good enough! Don’t believe me? When I was nominated to serve as President, I was a new graduate nurse-midwife, less than a year out of school. If I can do this, so can you. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be willing! We’re building mentorship into our leadership structure, and I promise we won’t let you fail. If you’re interested in serving as President-Elect, Secretary, Northern California Representative, or Central California Representative, email me at parisbury@gmail.com or text me at (805)415-2553.

Want to serve, but not yet ready for the Board of Directors? Join one of our committees! Put your tech skills to use as our Communications Committee Chair, help develop and rediversify the midwifery workforce by joining the Midwifery Workforce Development and Education Support Committee, grow our membership by joining the Membership Committee, or help plan the upcoming Annual Meeting by joining our Continuing Education Committee! There is so much work to do, and we make it fun (I promise).

Now’s your chance to pad your CV and make new friends. Join us! Read on for more details and don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m super friendly and almost always caffeinated!

With seemingly endless energy and enthusiasm,

Paris Maloof-Bury, CNM, IBCLC

President, California Nurse-Midwives Association
