"There is no higher purpose than service to others." —Socrates, the Peaceful Warrior

The Heart of the National Qigong Association is its members. Everything we do as an association revolves around how we can be of service to our members as they walk their collective Qigong paths. From Annual Conferences & Research and Education Blogs to QiTalks, QiTips, NQA Day and Certification, our volunteers drive the mission forward in service to others.

One of the most important ways you can give back to your Association is to pledge and commit volunteer service for a cause that matters to you. Giving back time, talent, and energy to your association allows us to:

  • Solve problems / offer new services
  • Improve others’ lives
  • Connect to like-hearted people
  • Strengthen our growing community
  • Transform your own life through service and community

That’s right, volunteer community service not only helps others, it helps you! There’s a growing body of research that indicates volunteering provides individual health benefits in addition to social ones, according to the Corporation for National & Community Service. They cite research that indicates people who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who never volunteer.


Certification Committee:

We are looking for volunteers to help with the Certification Committee which is responsible for reviewing and vetting all applicants for our NQA Instructor and Clinical Certification Paths. This is a critical role in helping ensure that members seeking qualified, local instructors continue to trust the NQA as a reliable source of that information. We take this mission very seriously and seek people who:

  • Wish to contribute by working as a liaison between the applicant(s) and the Application Review Committee
  • Preferably have gone through NQA certification themselves so they understand the process (However, if you have a clear passion for integrity and process flow, please step forward)
  • Are willing to work varied hours, ranging from many months of no work at all to a maximum of 10-15 hours per month
