The North American Quitline Consortium (NAQC) is the only organization dedicated to the promotion and development of evidence-based quitline services in North America. By bringing quitline partners together—including state and provincial quitline funders, service providers, researchers, and national organizations in the United States and Canada—NAQC helps facilitate shared learning and encourages a better understanding of quitline operations, promotions, and effectiveness to enhance overall quitline efforts. NAQC’s membership is a great investment in advancing your careers as well as insuring sustainability of your quitline programs and staying on the cutting edge of best practices, research findings, and technological advancements. The value of membership really pays of itself, our members enjoy:

NAQC prides itself on being a community of practice that brings members together virtually and in-person to advance the field. Together we strive to increase the visibility of quitlines to the policy makers, the health community, and the general public and to provide evidence-based resources that address emerging issues.
