14 Jun RSVP to State Association Cocktail Reception
You are invited to join IPCPR’s legislative team, state association leadership, and fellow retailers for a state association cocktail reception during the 2017 trade show in Las Vegas. State associations are state specific organizations that work to ensure your ability to sell premium tobacco products with limited government interference. You are not required to be a current state association member or have an established association in your state to attend the reception. Stop by the Government Affairs Booth / VIP PAC Lounge located on the show floor between 4 PM and 6 PM on July 12, for beverages, games, and networking. Please RSVP to Tori Ellington at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend the state association cocktail reception.
The state association cocktail reception is in lieu of the state association breakfast. If your state association would like to hold an individual annual meeting and has not scheduled it yet, email Rachel Hyde at email@example.com to request a date and time. Remember to consult the governing documents of your 501(c)6. Most state laws require that a nonprofit board of directors hold an official meeting at least once a year with meeting minutes taken. Holding an individual state association meeting gives you the opportunity to conduct business matters such as: approving budgets, reviewing financial statements, electing new board members and/or officers, planning fundraisers, and presenting updates of your organization’s achievements.
