Cigar News: IPCPR launches CigarAction.org Platform for Cigar Consumers & Retailers…Take Action!
Amidst the whirling vortex of drama and hyperbole, the country is staring down the barrel of midterm elections in 2 weeks, but for cigar retailers and smokers alike, it’s easy to forget the one fight we cannot lose sight of – the fight for the Premium Cigar Exemption. Just in case you fell asleep under a rock; this horse ain’t dead yet. The International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) is the oldest trade organization representing global tobacconists and has been an active lobbyist for tobacco retailers, manufacturers, distributors and consumers as well as a formidable foe in the fight for the Premium Cigar Exemption with the FDA.
Recently, the IPCPR added another arrow to its quiver in this fight by launching a new website – CigarAction.org. The site is designed with the retail tobacconists and consumers in mind offering many tools for cigar lovers and retailers to engage and serve an active role in this battle. The site provides everything from forms to send pre-written emails to our legislators; to images, sample posts and special hashtags for use on social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Retail tobacconists can leverage their subject matter expertise and join the Premium Cigar Action Network by signing up for email alerts to get the latest news and updates.
