CASAA is the Consumer Advocates for Smokefree Alternatives Association. It was formed in 2009 by members of this forum as an advocacy group, made up of both consumers and vendors, to raise awareness and protect our right to access reduced harm alternatives. CASAA's mission statement is: Some facts about CASAA: CASAA was formed as an answer to the anti-Tobacco Harm Reduction groups' efforts to ban THR products and in the belief that there is strength in our numbers. The CASAA 12-member board was elected by members of the electronic cigarette and smokeless tobacco community. CASAA board members are unpaid volunteers. CASAA is not a trade organization. CASAA is a non-profit 501c(4) organization. (status pending) CASAA is not financed nor run by the electronic cigarette, tobacco or pharmaceutical industry. While vendors are welcome to join, the Board is strictly limited to no more than 25% vendors. CASAA Regional Representatives volunteer to be watchdogs for their area and report back to the Board any activity they discover. There are currently 26 states and 5 countries with Representatives. CASAA maintains a web site at CASAA | The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association for the purpose of providing easy access for members and the general public to news articles, Call to Action alerts, scientific research studies, petitions, legal actions, pending legislation and educational materials regarding electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. CASAA maintains a discussion forum at http://casaaforum.org CASAA currently has over 3,400 registered members CASAA coordinates activism efforts with other advocacy organizations such as National Vapers Club, Right to Vape, Smokefree Pennsylvania and Midwest Vapers Group. CASAA works to increase it's credibility and influence by organizing activist efforts through our members, writing pro-reduced harm articles and issuing statements to the media regarding positive and negative legislation. CASAA raises funds for promoting these activities and to assist in research efforts. CASAA develops and supplies print materials such as informative business cards for smokeless tobacco/e-cig users to hand out, decals, bumper stickers, t-shirts and promotional materials for vendors and businesses. CASAA's web site is a neutral ground for vendors to send customers to learn more about electronic cigarettes and smokeless alternatives. CASAA has additional presence on other e-cig forums, Facebook, Twitter, Newsvine, Digg, Associated Content and YouTube. CASAA NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT! The 12-member volunteer board can't do everything themselves! CASAA needs member volunteers to assist with forwarding and publicizing CASAA articles and press releases, providing comment on negative media reports, contacting legislators, acting as Regional Representatives, their connections to influential people and groups, promational material development, videos, vendor support for CASAA's efforts and above all, your financial support through donations. Remember - if you are a member of CASAA, you are CASAA. So don't ask, "What is CASAA doing to help?" Ask, "What am I doing to help?"
