Each year, in partnership with the Ford Family, Birthright International recognizes Birthright Regional Consultants for milestone years of volunteer service to Birthright. Our Regional Consultants are experienced volunteers who accept a leadership role in Birthright. They are the “boots on the ground” in their geographic area and provide expertise, training, communication and support to Birthright Centres in their given areas.
Birthright International presents recipients with the “Ruthie Ford Service Award” at our annual Convention. This award is given for every 5 years of service. It was created by the Ford family in memory of Ruthie Ford, beloved Regional Consultant for many years. Recipients of 2020 & 2021 awards received their award by mail, however we felt it important to give them each public recognition as well.
