FAQs

What is the Pink Lung Brigade? 
The Pink Lung Brigade is a Washington State, 501c(6) non-profit, vape industry business association. 

Who can be a member? 
PLB represents vape industry shop owners, manufacturers, and distributors within the State of Washington.  The members of a tax-exempt business league are persons having a common business interest.

What is the difference between being a member versus a supporter? 
Supporters come in many forms: volunteers, fundraisers, participants in Calls To Action, sharers of social media outreach, financial donors, and raffle participants to name a few.  

Is it really that important that I am a member if I am already a supporter?
Yes, it really is.  Many business owners are both supporters and members.  Membership dues definitely help to pay for lobbying fees but equally as important they show our size as a voting base; one voice multitudes of votes. 

Where does the money go?
Currently, all funds are allocated to legal fees, lobbying efforts, bipartisan campaign donations and minor operating costs such as website, accounting, and paypal fees.  Pink Lung Brigade does not currently pay administrative fees or reimburse travel expenses. 

What are the current goals of the association?

What are the future goals of the association?  
PLB would like to expand the influence of the vape industry at the Capitol by starting a PAC (Political Action Committee) that would serve to support campaigns and legislators that have a thoughtful perspective on small business and the vape community.
