Join IPCA's Grassroots Network Today
With votes occurring on proposals to drastically increase motor fuel and cigarette excise taxes weeks away, now is the time to send to the IPCA your retail/dealer locations. It is vitally important that Senators and Representatives hear from our industry.
Thus far, 18 members representing 500 locations have confidentially supplied physical addresses, with a valid email address, for their retail stores or dealer-operated facilities.
“Today, the IPCA’s voice would be five times louder than we were prior to this initiative. But with our industry under attack, there is more that needs to be done,” said Scot Imus, IPCA Executive Director.
Members who would like to participate simply need to send a spreadsheet of their retail/dealer locations with a physical address and a valid email address for that location. This information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participating companies will receive a laminated card for each of their registered locations. This card will guide recipients of action alert emails to take four easy steps that would be required to respond to a legislative alert. A copy of the card is listed below.
“We understand that responding to an action alert puts an additional burden on an often overworked store manager. However, we are using a system that literally takes under a minute to complete. And that minute invested, pays big dividends to the industry,” Imus said.
