Augusta, NOVA, & Richmond Chapter Director Openings
Birth Matters Virginia

WHAT IS BIRTH MATTERS VIRGINIA?
Birth Matters Virginia is a non-profit, statewide volunteer organization that seeks to improve birth outcomes and lower social and economic costs through access to education, dissemination of evidence, and the sharing of personal narrative. This is primarily achieved through local, monthly, free Birth Circles, which are safe, supportive spaces for people who intend to give birth, have given birth, or who are preparing to give birth, as well as those in the care community that support them. At Birth Circle, people are encouraged to share birth stories and ask questions about pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. In addition to Birth Circles, local chapters may also choose to host or participate in community events, such as film screenings, educational workshops (e.g. comfort measures in labor), health fairs, and care provider celebrations (e.g. midwifery celebrations).
CHAPTER DIRECTOR ROLE
One year, volunteer term. The Chapter Director oversees the day-to-day activities of the chapter, represents the chapter as a voting member of the Coordinating Board of Birth Matters Virginia, and attends 3 or 4 regularly scheduled statewide meetings to serve as an active participant of the governing body of the organization.
