Who are coalition member organizations?
Maternal health organizations who primarily represent the lived experience of maternal health conditions and issues as well as groups with diverse representations of moms in the US.
We provide certified training for individuals with a "lived experience" – or those that represent them, maternal health organizations, and healthcare providers, to ensure a productive partnership and accepting culture is a part of all patient care and quality improvement practices.
To make membership dues equitable and ensure groups of all sizes have access to our coalition, member dues are based on the organization's annual budget. Member dues are as follows:
MoMMA’s Voices has a number of policies to ensure that actions and decisions are consistent and equitably applied for all parties. Membership policies help the MoMMA’s Voices staff provide clear direction regarding membership eligibility.
How do I become a member?
Organizations interested in joining the coalition start by filling out this application form. Once received applications are reviewed for eligibility and applicants are notified by email of their acceptance decision within 48 hours. If accepted, a payment link will be emailed to you.
Once we receive your membership dues payment, we will provide you access to an online onboarding presentation which will familiarize you with our patient family partner training program, as well as other coalition benefits. The platform that your community members will use to complete their patient family partner training.
Within the onboarding training new coalition members will be required to submit organization specific collateral so you can be added to the MoMMA’s Voices website as a coalition member.
Once new members complete their onboarding training and submit all required documents, they will be invited to coalition member calls and given your coupon code for unlimited access to the Patient Family Partner training.
Member Dues Policy
Membership fees are due annually on the anniversary of your first membership payment (join date). Coalition members are extended a 30-day grace period from the date of invoice. The grace period is the amount of time after a membership expires and before a payment is made. During this time the member continues to receive benefits. When the grace period expires, if the member has not renewed, the membership is changed to inactive and access to member benefits are revoked. After the 30-day grace period, coalition members can rejoin the organization by paying their membership dues plus a reinstatement fee and they will receive a new join date.
Coalition Membership Reinstatement Policy
After a 30-day grace period, coalition members are required to pay a membership reinstatement fee in addition to their membership dues. Reinstatement fees are based on the amount of time that the membership has lapsed.
Expectation of Professionalism
As a leader in maternal health advocacy and use of the patient voice, MoMMA’s Voices holds its members to the highest standards of professionalism and code of conduct.
Code of Conduct Policy
Members must exercise professionalism, consideration, and respect in their words and actions, as we are here to build each other up and support our roles as patient partners and advocates.
Violation of this code and engagement of unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated and MoMMA’s Voices may take any action that it deems appropriate, including exclusion from events or cancellation of membership (without refund).
Reporting Unacceptable Behavior
