INTRODUCTION
Page 4: hgz36e00
We are pleased to present our plan for completing the mandate given us some two and one half years ago when th~e Tobacco Action Network program was approved as a priority program in the Tobacco Institute business plan. Muchihas happened since then. The foundation of the 50-state national pro-tobacco organizationithat our member companies envisioned has been firmly set into place. TAN is operating in 36 states, under the direction of 17 state directors. By the end of 1980, 20 state directors will be operating in 41 states. For the first time, members of the tobacco family in these states have been unified. Und'er the TAN banner, they are working to blunt the anti-tobacco attacks on the industry. They have been remarkably successful. Th~e value of a coordinated national pro-tobacco force has beenidemonstrated very clearly. TAN is working! N O N Now it is time to bring TAN up to the full potential mandated two $kDh the heartland of the tobacco Q incliud'in h lf ars a o b d' g ye g - y an one a family, the southeastern states.

TAN NEEDS THE TOB'ACC&GROWING STATES Obviously the heart of the tobacco family is in the southeastern states. These states, therefore, are crucial to the validity of the nationwide TAN effort. When "Tobaccoland" is officially included in the TAN structure, the TAN pro-tobacco message will be able to be delivered at full strength. WhemTAN acts, it will clearly be acting for all of tobacco. This extra - and most important - clout will most certainly make the TAN effort even more effective, especially on the national and state legislative levels. A total national response will also help TAN counteract proposed anti-tobacco rules and regulations by such federal agencies as the FDA, CAB, and FTC, wh~en needed. In TAN's first CAB letter writing campaign, the response from the tobacco states was pitifully small. In the future, we would hope the response from the major tobacco producing 'states will be the strongest of all the TAN areas. This is as it should be! There will be another benefit when TAN expands into major tobacco growing states. The stature of the organization will be further enhanced, and~ that will help TAUgain even broader support from the various elements of the tobacco family throughout the nation.

THE TOBACCO'GROW'ING STATES NEED TAN The attack on tobaccolis national iniscope. Countering it requires a unified, coordinated national effort. That is, in fact, why TAN is so badly needed and was created~as a 50-state nationwide organization. The tobacco growing states are not immune to anti-tobacco efforts. Many potentially-damaging proposals have been introduced in state legislatures and local communities throughout the southeast. Addendum A to this presentation outlines these proposals. They represent challenges that TANIwas designed:to overcome - more will surface in the future. The many tobacco-family organizations already in place ini the southeast are functioning well in their specific problem areas. Th~e expansion of TAN into the southeastern states will not affect their important work. Rather, TAN will, rally them under a national banner and permit them to participate in and support coordinated efforts in those areas that affect the tobacco family as a whole, an effort which is lacking at present. TAN will permit the great strength of th~e tobacco heartland to be mobilized against anti-tobacco efforts elsewhere in the nation. TAN will permit this area to speak out as one, in favor of the tobacco point-of-view.

WITH THE TOBACCO' GROWING STATES THE FULL POTENTIAL OF TAN CAN BE REALIZED When the tobacco-growing states are included in TAN, the nationwide organization mandated by the member companies on November 8, 1977 will be totally in place. At this point, the full potential of TAN will begin to be realized throughout the nation. All the basic industry- segments will then be a part of TAN. The work of the TAN organization can then be directed more effectively to fight efforts at federal, state, county, and municipal levels to restrict or prohibit the use of tobacco or to increase taxes. And, in the longer term, TANican more readily help create a greater sense of unity and pride among the members of the tobacco family, as well as a more positive image for tobacco with the general public.
