    On August 8, 2014, the FDA comment period closed. As stated in our Calls to Action, this is not a battle that is going to be won based solely on comments to the proposed regulations. Accordingly, we are going to attack this on several different fronts. Before the draft regulations were published, we had envisioned a single Call to Action with several suggested actions. However, upon seeing the details, we decided the best strategy to effect positive change is to prepare a comprehensive Action Plan which consists of several Calls to Action issued at staggered dates to maximize effectiveness. The Action Plan will include, among other things, Calls to Action with specific requests directed towards members of Congress. To support this massive undertaking, we have subscribed to CQ Roll Call, a program which will help connect our members easily and in a targeted fashion with their state and federal legislators on specifically crafted campaigns we design.


    Because the FDA comment site may not post all of your comments and they are particularly difficult to track, we are also doing a survey of the vaping community to collect and officially record the comments made to the FDA. Depending upon participation, this should give CASAA a way to report the true involvement of the community to the media and Congress, along with a way to share your comments directly with them, without the comments submitted by the opposition and the cigar supporters. It will also give CASAA statistics on ways to better reach the vaping community for future actions. This will be compelling information that will help us continue our fight.

    This very short survey will be asking just a few, simple questions and for you to copy and paste your confirmation number and your saved submission to the FDA into the survey. Don't worry if you don't have those things saved, just answering the remaining questions will be a great help to us.

    I have a question: If I have already submitted all of my comment tracking numbers to CASAA, should I still take the survey? I mean, is it best to limit the survey to those who haven't emailed you their numbers?

    Ok thank you sonic :) I was just a little reserved because I don't want them to end up with a ton of duplicate info, i.e. have an unnecessary extra burden :) I will gladly participate then.

    I like the Idea of the CASAA Survey.

    And drawing more Statistical Inferences about e-Cigarette Users in general.

    I'm not sure if there was a mass e-mail request sent out by CASAA for this survey or not as I did not receive one if so. I just happened to come across this thread by chance. May get more survey results if all CASAA members are aware of the request.

    I just hadn't had a chance to set it up yet. An email went out to the CASAA members today. :)

    I did fill out the survey on Wednesday August 13th, 2014...it was number 1172...but when I checked the posted response on Survey Monkey on Saturday...it had parts of my response seemingly deleted as well as a contradictory response posted in grey rather than black and white...please check into it whether Survey Monkey is having glitches or if this is done deliberately to mask the responders information (one of the deletions was the FDA tracking number I supplied).
