Babywearing International is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, incorporated in North Carolina. It is governed by a Board of Directors, with Directors each serving for renewable two year terms. Directors are voted onto the board by our voting members, which include all Chapter Volunteers in good standing. These votes take place during our annual meetings each November. The Board currently has five officer positions: President, Vice President of Programs and Administration, Vice President of Administration, Treasurer and Secretary. Officer positions are voted on and filled by sitting members of the Board.
In order to help us manage our aggressive growth, the Board has recently created a number of advisory and action committees. These committees are tasked with projects such as creating educational resources, educator training programs, finding ways to increase our organization’s diversity and inclusiveness, advising us of state-specific legal issues, ushering incoming chapter volunteers and chapters themselves through the onboarding process, plan festivities for International Babywearing Week and the International Babywearing Conference, and much more. These committees are a fantastic way to get involved on the national level, learn new skills, or even boost a résumé.
