Form Letter to NACPM

If you are interested in sending a letter to the NACPM (president@nacpm.org) regarding student representation at the upcoming CPM Symposium you may consider using the following letter in part or in whole.

I encourage you to share personal experiences that motivate you to participate in this important forum.

If you would like to send it anonymously, forward it to me and I will send it from the futuremidwives@gmail.com email.

Dear NACPM leadership,
I write to you as a midwifery student/supporter of midwifery students.  I fully support the stated goals of the CPM Symposium you have planned for March.  The work of promoting midwifery as a profession is essential to the health and well being of our communities.

Please consider that student midwives have a unique perspective in the accomplishment of these goals.  Since the profession of midwifery and therefore the educational process toward becoming a CPM is changing at such a rapid pace I believe that it is crucial to bring student midwives into the conversation about how to make the education process sustainable.

Please consider inviting the students to represent their perspective in this important Symposium.  Several leaders have naturally arisen over the past few years.  We have formed a student organization called the Future Midwives Alliance.

I look forward to seeing how you incorporate the student perspective into this crucial work.
