The ACNM Annual Meeting is the premier opportunity for midwives, students, and other women's health care providers to polish professional and clinical skills, learn the latest evidence-based research, share knowledge and experiences, and celebrate the work that midwives are doing to advance maternity and women's health care.
The educational line-up includes direct clinical practice matters, updates on changing state and national laws, regulations and quality initiatives, and ongoing efforts to improve access to safe maternity care globally. Attending the ACNM Annual Meeting is one of the best ways to learn about developments in midwifery and women's health and earn CEUs. Attendees can earn as many as 30 hours of credit.
In addition to the educational aspects of the meeting, an important piece of the ACNM Annual Meeting continues to be networking and interfacing with midwives from around the country. Indeed, ACNM’s Annual Meeting is the place for midwives to come together, share their experiences with old friends, and connect with new ones.
Need a few reasons to put this year's Annual Meeting on your calendar? Last year, 95% of attendees said they would recommend the meeting to their peers. The ACNM 58th Annual Meeting will be held at the downtown Nashville Convention Center, surrounded by the shopping, dining, history, and attractions at the heart of the city - all culturally intertwined with the music that defines it.
