Join a Committee

We have a few different Action Committees that work to support TFAV’s purpose of changing the landscape of tobacco use in Virginia. Committees meet independently between meetings to work toward their own goals and report back to the greater coalition quarterly.

The Legislative Committee works to monitor and review legislative initiatives around tobacco-related issues and make recommendations for future legislative priorities. The Committee has beneficial reach into the goings on of Virginia politics and represents the Alliance in strategic efforts pertaining to policy or the democratic process. The Committee engages members to participate in direct education or the dissemination of information during times of policy change or General Assembly sessions.

The Membership Committee is responsible for supporting the mission and strategic plan of TFAV via collaboration with the executive committee and members. The Committee will review strategies, challenges, and needs in order to provide insight on membership recruitment, engagement and retention. The Committee may from time to time assess and recommend products, services, and programs that will add value to the membership.

The Communications Committee maintains interactive communication with members by providing alliance updates, news, and other timely information to members during the time between meetings. The Committee ensures coalition members stay up-to-date regarding recent tobacco control activities and contacts members with any requests for input or action that may arise during times of local policy change or General Assembly sessions. The Committee supports and maintains the TFAV website, social media accounts, and satisfies any technology requirements of the Alliance.
