Joining the New York State Association of Licensed Midwives is important for all midwives so we can increase access and choice for the families we care for in the state. Your financial support of NYSALM helps us influence the legislation and regulations affecting the practice of midwifery in New York. With the support of our members, we can influence both our practice environment and, more importantly, the health and well-being of women and families.
With your membership you receive the benefits of having your state association at your side. We have an active and ongoing relationship with many departments in New York State's government. We work on issues such as hospital credentialing, insurance reimbursement, malpractice insurance affordability, and inter-professional relationships.
In July 2011, NYSALM became the state affiliate of the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM). The ACNM is now collecting state dues on our behalf. There are now six categories of membership:
-Lifetime (15 times annual dues): $1,125.00 one-time fee

-1st Year Eligible: $75.00/year
-Associate (non-midwives): $40.00/year
