Lamaze International is an organization that is led by a volunteer Board of Directors.  Tara Owens Shuler is our Board President.  Many women and men donate immeasurable hours, knowledge and skills by filling council and committee positions and stepping up to volunteer in so many facets of our organization.  All of these volunteers contribute to making Lamaze International the premier childbirth education  and advocacy organization for evidence based maternity care for mothers and babies here in North America and worldwide.

Lamaze is recognized as a leader in the childbirth community and we want to continue to offer families, educators and other birth professionals the top-notch workshops, trainings, classes, webinars, publications, resources and conferences that people expect from an organization of our caliber.  This can only be accomplished by your help!

Lamaze International is actively seeking men and women to fill  Board of Director positions beginning in the fall of 2013 as current directors’ terms are ending.  Do you have the skills, energy and ideas that we need?  Do you enjoy collaborating and thinking globally with others who are equally passionate about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting?  Are you ready to take on a leadership role in the Lamaze organization and contribute your expertise and skill set to making our organization even bigger and better and helping to improve maternity care?  If the idea of serving Lamaze in this way is of interest to you, then I encourage you to read more about the upcoming elections and considering submitting an application to be considered for the slate.

Board members serve for 4 years and participate in two in-person meetings a year, the first weekend in March and at the annual conference in the fall.  To learn more about the roles and responsibilities of board members, please read the Board job descriptions.  You may download a board candidate questionnaire and submit it before the application deadline of April 15th, 2013

The Board of Directors may be a big step and you may be hesitant.  Why not consider easing in to volunteer service with Lamaze by serving in another capacity, such as on one of the Lamaze International committees.  The following openings are available:

More information about these volunteer opportunities can be found on our Volunteer Opportunities page.  Lamaze International depends and relies on the wisdom, passion, skills and contributions of our members who step up and go the extra mile by volunteering for this dynamic organization.  What a wonderful way to be involved, learn about all the new and exciting things that Lamaze is doing, collaborate with other passionate members and make a real difference.  If you are new to the birth professional community, volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to learn and expand your network of colleagues.

I would love to hear what you are interested in?  Where do you see yourself getting involved?  How you can help Lamaze International grow and develop?  Share your thoughts in our comments section, check out the board and committee openings at the above links and get involved now!
