Australian College of Midwives welcomes new CEO Helen White

 

The Australian College of Midwives (ACM) is delighted to welcome new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Helen White.

Helen was most recently Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT where her focus was maximising member experience, satisfaction and growth as well as ensuring its long-term sustainability. Prior to this role, she was Executive Officer at the Australian Podiatry Association, where she represented the profession and lead the development of the Association’s education and events program.

Helen’s experience leading member based, not for profit organisations give her a unique skillset, leaving her well placed to grow ACM and position ACM membership as vital for midwives who are seeking to both support and be supported by their profession.

“It’s ACM’s role to lead and advocate for midwifery; to engage with and support midwives through their careers from student to retirement. Only then can we ensure that midwifery is positioned as the primary profession for quality maternity care and achieve the best outcomes for mothers and babies,” Helen said.

“I am committed to leading ACM on the journey to strengthen and grow our organisation and I’m excited by the opportunity to achieve this important mission,” she concluded.
