NARM Midwifery Care Accountability Committee members must be CPMs. Preference is given to applicants who have been a CPM for at least three years and who have been involved in their state, regional, or national midwifery associations. The term length for the Midwifery Care Accountability Committee Members is three years. Terms are staggered and the initial Committee Members’ terms will be one, two, or three years. Members may serve additional terms.
All members of the NARM Midwifery Care Accountability Committee are volunteers. Members will have their CPM recertification fee waived after the completion of two years of service on the committee. Recertification fees will continue to be waived for the remainder of the time they serve on the committee after their initial two years of service.
NARM Midwifery Care Accountability Committee members will participate in Complaint Review committees. Members will rotate the responsibility of coordinating the Complaint Review process for each complaint the committee receives. The coordinator of the Complaint Review for a particular complaint will be responsible for organizing Complaint Review meetings or referring cases to the NARM Board for the Grievance process. They assure outcome letters are sent to the NARM Board. The committee will submit a quarterly report to the NARM Board regarding how the committee is functioning, as well as the status of any open cases and outcomes of completed cases.
There are not always openings on the Committee at the time of interview, but applications will be held for consideration when there is an opening.
