Volunteer Opportunities

Membership in the NAECB committees is open by invitation to interested individuals. Some committees require that members be certified asthma educators (AE-C).

To join a committee, all members must commit to at least one year of service. Committee members must be on all conference calls, attend meetings when necessary, and actively complete tasks and contribute to the charge of the committee consistent with the mission of the NAECB.

If you are interested in joining a particular committee, please forward a statement of interest and your resume or CV to the Executive office at NAECB, 4001 E. Baseline Rd. Suite 206 Gilbert AZ. 85234 Telephone No: 877.408.0072 or by email to info@naecb.org. Requests will then be forwarded to the Board chair.

Time Commitment

All committees conduct business via email and conference calls. Time commitment varies by committee and may change due to various projects. Some committees have a monthly conference call (moderate). Most committees however, have a conference call 2-3 times per year with all other work conducted via email (minimal).
