NAS-JM Committee

NAS JM structure

The NAS Junior Committee (NAS-JM) is a joint initiative between the Junior Member Assembly (JMA) and the National Allergy Societies Committee (NASC), first established in the year 2019.

The creation of this Committee was aimed at increasing the participation of junior members from National Allergy Societies (NAS) within EAACI, giving visibility to national junior organizations, and overcoming both national and language barriers that might hinder active participation of NAS members in EAACI.

The tasks of the NAS-JM Committee are:
  • - To build a network of junior representatives for each national society with the purpose of promoting national junior-oriented activities, research and education, lobbying and advocating for allergy specialty in European countries
    - To help translate EAACI documents (i.e. guidelines, position papers) into national languages and disseminate such documents through the NAS and EAACI networks
    - To help disseminate EAACI campaigns and other activities within the national networks, and viceversa
    - To be actively involved in the NASC activities (i.e. working groups, joint collaborations, initiatives)

National Societies that are willing to participate to the NAS Junior Committee do nominate an EAACI Junior Member as NAS-JM Representative, according to their own bylaws.
