Growing Your Business. Defending the Industry.

IPCPR is now PCA—the Premium Cigar Association. Our name may be new, but our core values remain the same—to grow and protect the premium tobacco industry by providing crucial educational and advocacy resources, fostering valuable business connections and amplifying our members’ voices on Capitol Hill. We are a dynamic force. A decisive leader. A steadfast advocate. A resilient and robust organization that is proud to be premium tobacco’s center of excellence.

Without question, for 25 years the number one driver for year over year growth in my business has been my membership and involvement with our trade association. Attending our annual convention allows me to build lasting relationships with key vendors and retailers, which in turn keeps my stores on the cutting edge of the premium cigar category. Invaluable!
