Voting members

Each hospital member has three voting members:

  • Chief of OB
  • Chief of Pediatrics
  • OB Nursing Director

The great majority of our work is done via collaboration and consensus, so we do not often require a vote, but we maintain that function for certain considerations such as changes to governance and dues.

Election process

  • Members-at-Large are elected to Steering Committee: MDs, RNs, Midwives
  • Other Steering Committee roles are ex-officio – Directors, Committee Chairs
  • Steering Committee appoints Committee Chairs
  • Committee Chair or Steering Committee appoints additional members for committees & workgroups
