Location: NACPM has no physical office location and the majority of the work for this position is done virtually, although the Office Manager attends and supports two three-day in-person Leadership Team meetings each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. These meetings are held in various locations, with at least one meeting a year in Washington, DC, and at times in other locations in the United States. Candidate must live on the Eastern U.S. corridor between Washington, DC, and Maine or in adjacent states to enable periodic, in-person work sessions with the Executive Director.

The Office Manager attends, takes minutes, and supports a once-a-month evening (EST) Leadership Team meeting.


The National Association of Certified Professional Midwives is a small, mission-driven, values-based membership organization representing Certified Professional Midwives (CPM) in the United States. CPMs, a rapidly growing segment of the midwifery profession, are nationally credentialed, community-based primary perinatal care providers trained to offer high-quality evidence-based care to people during the childbearing year in homes and free-standing birth centers, incorporating best practices to foster normal physiologic birth. CPMs provide unique and critical access to physiologic birth in the U.S., profoundly benefitting childbearing people and their babies. Founded in 2001, NACPM has adopted a policy agenda for promoting access to and integration of CPMs into the birth care system in the U.S., addressing barriers to practice; supporting reimbursement and the licensing of CPMs in all 50 states, DC and the U.S. territories; promoting equity and social justice in midwifery and in birth; promoting quality care through clinical practice resources; and engaging in state and federal advocacy to increase childbearing people’s access to quality care and to eliminate birth outcome inequities and disparities.
