April 8, 2014: VCC is excited to announce that Mr. Gregory Conley of The Heartland Institute, and President of the American Vaping Association (www.vaping.info), will be the welcome speaker for VCCNE2014. In addition, Mr. Conley, an extremely knowledgeable and eloquent speaker, will lead legislative advocacy town hall style sessions (schedule TBD) for those interested in attending while at the convention–you will NOT want to miss these! Thank you to Mr. Conley; VCC looks forward to your participation.
BIO: Gregory Conley joined the Heartland Institute in February of 2014 as a research fellow in the areas of tobacco and nicotine policy and regulation. Prior to joining Heartland, Conley served as the volunteer legislative director for the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA), the largest consumer group representing the interests of users of smoke-free tobacco and nicotine products. There, he led grassroots efforts aimed at defeating legislation that aimed to make low-risk alternatives to smoking like electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco less accessible or affordable. His interest in the field of tobacco harm reduction (THR) began after he quit smoking with an e-cigarette in August 2010. Conley has given testimony before the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, as well as committees in numerous state legislatures. His work has appeared in several outlets, including the New York Post, National Review Online, Reason Online, and Convenience Store Decisions. Conley earned a Juris Doctor and Masters in Business Administration from Rutgers University. In addition to his work with Heartland, Conley is an attorney and an independent legislative consultant and policy analyst with a specialization in health, tax and tobacco issues.
One of the main goals of every Vaping Convention Circuit (VCC) event is to have an advocacy aspect. VCCNE2014 will unveil a new concept to step this idea up a notch: THR Advocacy Row. An entire row of booths at VCC events dedicated to tobacco harm reduction advocacy. VCC has offered a gratis booth to VISTA Truth Inc. (www.vistatruth.org), the American Vaping Association (AVA – www.vaping.info), CASAA (www.casaa.org), and The Vaping Militia (www.thevapingmilitia.org), the American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association (AEMSA – www.aemsa.org), and the Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA – www.sfata.org). These organizations will be in attendance; there is no way we will win the fight for our rights without cooperation across the board.
(Note: None of the organizations listed promote or support VCC or VCC events. They are attending as special guests strictly to inform attendees about THR advocacy)
