Met Scott Pearce IPCPR Exec. Director

Turns out the father of one of my son's Cub Scout pack members is Scott Pearce, the Executive Director of the IPCPR. Had an interesting conversation with him. Couple of nuggets:

He is proposing to change the name of the organization so it no longer has the initials CPR in the acronym

There are plans to open up memberships to non-industrial professionals (consumers) and allow consumer-members to attend the annual show. He also wants to hold more consumer-focused events (i.e. tastings, volunteer opportunities) and we talked a lot about legislative challenges, and the cigar industry in general. Really good guy.
