As a not for profit organization, DONA International is led and governed by its members. We have multiple ways for members to get involved and to step up into leadership positions.
Our Board of Directors positions are filled in two ways, in accordance with our bylaws. Each year, for position terms which have ended, our nominations and elections committee vetts and recommends candidates for approval to be brought forward by the Board of Directors to the membership for elections. Additionally, positions that are empty, can be filled by appointment by the board.

The Board of Directors meets regularly to make decisions on behalf of the organization and set the strategic goals and direction of the organization.
Serving on the Board of Directors is an excellent opportunity to utilize your leadership skills for this large non-profit membership organization. In addition, serving the DONA International membership, it’s also an opportunity to join fellow DONA doulas and build relationships within the organization.
