Welcome to Tobacco E-News

NATO and CSP have entered into an exclusive partnership to launch Tobacco E-News powered by NATO and CSP Information Group. Tobacco E-News will be the most comprehensive weekly electronic newsletter for tobacco retailers and tobacco category decision-make

According to CSP Information Group President and CEO Paul Reuter, "Tobacco E-News combines the superior legislative and lobbying efforts of NATO with CSP's award-winning editorial reporting. The tobacco industry continues to undergo major transitions and, with the impact of FDA's oversight now being felt, there is no better time for tobacco outlets and convenience store retailers to have a dedicated resource helping them grow their tobacco business."

NATO has earned a reputation within the tobacco industry as being a premier national retail trade association that assists members [image-nocss] to participate in the legislative process on tobacco issues. In fact, NATO is the only national organization that focuses exclusively on local, state and federal tobacco legislation and tobacco regulations.

Tobacco E-News will contain tobacco legislative and regulatory articles written by NATO's Executive Director Thomas Briant, as well as timely tobacco news stories written by CSP's editorial staff, including senior editor Linda Zid. The combination of articles from NATO and CSP will make Tobacco E-News the leading source of information for the tobacco industry.

One of the important benefits of being a NATO retail member is receiving a more robust version of Tobacco E-News. Even with the widely circulated version of Tobacco E-News each week, you will come to appreciate the kind of additional informative articles on tobacco legislation and current updates on federal FDA tobacco regulations that are made available through NATO membership.
