The CAM Board of Directors is recommending an update to individual membership categories in the CAM bylaws.
BE SURE TO JOIN US AT THE AGM: This change requires approval from the membership on June 15, 2022.
What you need to know
The Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM) is a membership-based Association and as such defines individual memberships and the membership structure in the adopted bylaws (2013 section 12). Individual membership at CAM establishes the membership fee and eligibility to vote at CAM’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Surveying the Member Associations found that each Association’s use of the membership categories varies as the bylaw (2013) definitions are vague, causing confusion with fees and voting privileges with CAM for the individual member. CAM’s Board of Directors has reviewed the individual membership structure and is proposing modifications to allow for consistent application of the individual membership structure for all Member Associations.
