Re: POWER IN NUMBERS

I got 200 signs delivered for 9 tanning rooms today from our state health department. LOL Tax dollars hard at work.

I don't believe the ITA has set up the new links yet.

Re: POWER IN NUMBERS

Tony that is simply not true. We are not talking about the rule that just came out making it a class two medical device..

There are two additional actions just started by the FDA. They are in the first stage and the actual rule change has not even been made public yet. They are proposing to make tanning device now a restricted device.

Re: POWER IN NUMBERS

I already got the CLASS II stickers on my newest booths. I dont think ITA will get much done.

Tony stickers on your beds will not do much good if the FDA makes tanning beds a restricted device. Did you actually read Roberts post prior to yours?

Re: POWER IN NUMBERS

Tony what does having class II stickers on your newest equipment have to do with what I am referring to?

Re: POWER IN NUMBERS

Robert,
Talking to salon owners in the past one of the big issues was transparency of ITA funds. How are the donations & show dollars spent? Is that something being addressed?

Has the money been used in the same fashion for the past 10 -15 years, with the same results?

Re: POWER IN NUMBERS

Sorry for the delay traveling for the ITA the last 2 days.

There are no show dollars for the last 5 years.

Going forward all salon dues and show dollars will be spent on state and federal issues including the FDA battles. This is what the board agreed to last meeting.
