The Electronic Vaping Coalition of America

The Electronic Vaping Coalition of America (EVCA) is a grassroots organization created to educate and mobilize others in the vaping industry with the goal of crafting sensible regulatory practices that will protect consumers and allow the vaping industry to grow through new innovation and technology.

EVCA was formed on May 10, 2016 and is being organized under Internal Revenue Service section 501(c)(6), member organization sharing a common business/consumer interest.

We were instrumental in briefing of Wisconsin U. S. Senator Ron Johnson, and his staff,  that resulted in his May 17th letter to FDA Commissioner Califf.
