Welcome

Austin Babywearing works to make a positive difference in the lives of children and their caregivers by sharing the practice of babywearing. Our meetings provide attendees the opportunity to try many carriers, receive expert instruction, and get connected with other caregivers in our supportive and inclusive community.

Board of Directors Nominations

Have you ever asked yourself:
“I want to be on the board of a nonprofit, but I don’t know where to start”
“I want to volunteer in the community but I always have babies and kids with me”
“I want to give back but don’t have tons of spare time, just a few hours a month”
Then Austin Babywearing is the Board of Directors for you!

We are seeking nominations for the Board of Directors positions of Secretary and Treasurer. These are one year terms ending June 2020.

Secretary is responsible for recording the meeting minutes (notes) at our board meetings, keeping track of our official documents, and running elections.

Treasurer is responsible for the financials of the organization.

Our current Secretary and Treasurer are available to help you and answer questions. And the President and Vice Presidents are not up for reelection until January so they will be here to make sure your transition onto the board goes smoothly. We have board meetings at least once a quarter, usually once a month. Kids and babies are welcome at our meetings. We use Slack for communication between meetings. We use google suite to keep track of our documents and for email. So if you’ve used gmail and google docs before you already know the majority of our tools.

If you have any questions email info@AustinBabywearing.org. The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 21.

Meeting Details

We will now be meeting at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas on 1315 Barbara Jordan Blvd. Austin, Texas 78723. Meetings will be held on the fourth Saturday of each month (unless otherwise noted) from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Please park in the free Dell Children’s Medical Center parking lot (RMHC’s parking lot is small and only accommodates guest families and volunteers). The DMCM parking lot is right across the street from RMHC, and you can come in through either our North or South Entrance – please see the ultra-professional map below. If the doors are locked, buzz the intercom and RMHC will let you in – once inside, take the elevator to the 4th floor, and the Community Room is the only publicly-accessible area up there (so it’s not hard to find!).

RMHC is allowing us to use the space in exchange for a donation. ABW makes a monetary donation to RMHC each month and we invite you to make a donation if you would like to from their Wish Lists (this is not a requirement to attend meetings).
