Editor’s Note: This morning, the Cigar Media Association was officially announced via a press release. Cigar Coop / Stogie Geeks are proud to be a part of this organization.  As cigar media has grown, we think it is an important step to take.  Our number one goal is to strengthen the relationship online media has with the industry.

This morning a group of online media members announced the establishment of the Cigar Media Association, Inc. The association was established and
incorporated in December of 2013, and documents of the association were drafted
by the seven founding members. There are currently five members who have
submitted the application and been accepted, and those members are A Cigar Smoker, Cigar Coop, Cigar Federation, The Cigarmy and Seth’s Humidor. The Cigar Media Association would like to thank Reagan Starner of R&R Cigars for the assistance and
guidance that he provided in establishing a relationship with the IPCPR. As a member of the Executive
Committee for IPCPR, Dave Garofalo had nothing but positive comments on the
Cigar Media Association knowing this is a step in the right direction for cigar
media. We thank you for your cooperation in this and if you have any question
about the association do not hesitate in asking.

More
important than this press release, we would like to invite members of online media to join the Cigar Media Association, Inc.
There are so many online media members that have been wonderful member
of the online media for the cigar industry for years, and
know they will be a wonderful addition to this newly established
association.
There are many goals of this association, but one of the more important
ones is
to strengthen the relationship that online media has with the industry,
and in
return help us be better at what we love to do.

The Cigar Media Association is committed to
providing a strong working relationship between new media and the IPCPR
We are committed to working with manufacturers and other members of the
industry to provide an outlet to easily disseminate accurate press information
to credentialed members of the cigar media. The Cigar Media Association is also committed as a whole to fostering
collaboration among its members to strengthen everyone as a whole in this
industry.

Right now there are four manufacturers of all different calibers working with us and
supporting us in our mission to strength the Cigar Media Association, and we know that you can help us in
achieving the association’s goals. We know that the Cigar Media Association will help you in return, and while we all
as members of the cigar media have different goals and roads to get there, the CMA will most definitely help us all on
our paths. Right now there are two open positions on the board of directors as
well, and if you are interested in being on the board, please let us know.


If you are
interested, please do not hesitate in contacting myself and I will send the
required application and governing documents of the association. We appreciate
the time you took in reading this announcement and please do not hesitate to contact Seth Geise, CMA Secretary
