Since our founding in 2012, our mission at SFATA has been to protect innovation and access for vapor products; starting with federal representation and later with our 23 state chapters.
In the last four years, SFATA has grown from a small group of industry leaders to the largest trade association in the vapor industry and the leading voice for vapor businesses.
Our strength comes from our more than 800 members. In February we hosted our largest fly-in to date in Washington, DC and another in Sacramento, CA. in March. We have represented the industry positively at numerous conferences and seminars and provided exclusive online content for members in addition to other benefits like discounts on business insurance. We have educated lawmakers and regulators alike about what the vapor industry is really about; who pioneered it, the faces of the business owners and the challenges they face.
When we first started, we worried that the industry would not unite in the fight to preserve the innovation of the industry and that access to the products would be denied. But our membership has grown and we have had more wins than we expected.
Battles from anti-vapor groups are coming faster and harder, and we need to maintain our strength. With FDA’s deeming regulations looming and bureaucracy at the state and local level never ending, SFATA membership should be a top priority of every vapor business.
Have you asked your suppliers if they are SFATA members? What about the companies you sell to? Your wholesalers? Distributors?
