    Australian Vaper's Association.

    This is just a head's up to let you know that a few of us have been working behind the scenes on an idea which would see the inauguration of the Australian Vapers Association.

    To put it simply, there was a call which went out on AVF a few months ago, asking for people to 'step forward' to get involved with creating a document which sought to report on the viability of starting an organisation which would represent the views and rights of people in Australia who vape. We think it's time to get organised, so that when the time comes, and it is coming, we'll have a democratic agreement about what's really important to us as a group, and in our elected representatives, people who are informed and mandated to put forward our opinion to decision makers in public health, law and government.

    Once we publish the report, we'll be keen to hear everyone's feedback, and to gauge support for moving forward with a national association. One thing to keep in mind is that there will be no association unless it is supported by vapers. I'm hoping that by tomorrow evening, I'll have the group's go ahead to publish our report.

    I'm so excited to see such positive early responses!
    The report we've put together is going to describe the "form" we see as the most practical going forward.
    If there is support for this, then we will go ahead and put together a tentative constitution, which is the next step before we can elect representatives to a committee.
    Of course, once the committee is elected, they will be able to change the constitution as they see fit, and that's when this tiger gets it's teeth.

    I think with all the posts I have read on AVF from people who have been saying this is what is needed, and all the talented people on here willing to donate their time to the cause, that it should lead to a successful outcome.

    It is certainly the time to get together and become "official"
