Governance & Funding

Governance

The NNA AU is entirely governed by its Board of Trustees, who are drawn from the scientific community and from the ranks of “new nicotine” consumers.

In formulating policy, we will consult widely with the scientific community, industry and end-user stakeholders.

 

Funding

The NNA AU is funded by donations from private individuals and organisations. We do not accept donations from the tobacco industry, the electronic cigarette industry or manufacturers/distributors of other nicotine products. Our independence from commercial conflicts of interest is of paramount importance.

You can donate to the NNA AU via bank transfer or PayPal here.
