The American Vaping Association is a nonprofit pro-vaping organization that advocates for policies that encourage adult smokers to switch to smoke-free vaping products. The AVA was founded by Gregory Conley, a consumer and industry advocate with a long track record of advocating for vapor products dating back to 2010.
We are dedicated to educating the public and government officials about public health benefits offered by vapor products, which are battery-powered devices that heat a liquid nicotine or nicotine-free solution and create an inhalable vapor. The AVA is not a trade group and does not speak for any particular businesses, including our sponsors.
The AVA is an IRS-recognized 501(c)(4) organization (PDF). Donations to the AVA are not tax deductible as charitable contributions.
