The Region

The College of Midwives Auckland Region represents members and is the largest (by membership numbers) of the 10 regions. Members include midwives, consumers, students and affiliated groups. Members work in a variety of settings in a region that contains three District Health Boards as well as a number of Primary Birthing Units. Each Region functions autonomously and have their own constitutions which align to the national College constitution. Each region also has its own elected office bearers and Regional Committee. Each of the regional chair-people are part of the National Committee (the governance body of the College) which meets three times a year ensuring that regional midwifery related issues are raised at a national level and the issues of national interest to midwifery are brought back to the regions for feedback and comment.

The Auckland region keeps its members informed of current issues by way of monthly regional meetings and email. We encourage members to join the global email so that we can notify members quickly about current events, workshops and the latest information.
