Welcome Dionne Corcoran CPM, LM
MANA'S New Director of Events
Hello! As the newest MANA board member, I am excited to be helping plan this year’s conference. I remember attending my first MANA conference as a student midwife 10 years ago. There were so many midwives of different ages, walks of life, and locations. Yet all had gathered in this place for a common reason, love of birthing families and a desire to serve them. It was a wonderful experience full of learning and camaraderie. In the last years I have closely followed our midwifery world. I understand the very real issues that cause anger and division. We have much to learn. As we at MANA step back to look at where the organization has been, we will be evaluating and looking forward to stepping into a place we want to be. Connection is important. All voices in all communities must be heard. For that reason and many others, I personally invite you to join us at this year’s conference. Come speak to colleagues, leaders, and upcoming midwives. Reconnect and rejuvenate! I look forward to meeting you, to listening, and to serving you in the position of Director of Events.
