Committees & Task Forces

Committees are vital contributors to the ongoing success of midwives' professional association. They provide direction based on lived experiences of midwives and contribute immensely to the strength and growth of the AOM. They also ensure the voices of members are included in all aspects of AOM activity. Joining opens up opportunities to work collectively with midwives across the province and to advocate for the needs of your communities.

Members (including student members) are encouraged to sit on the AOM's committees, work groups and task forces.
