The Premium Cigar Association (PCA) has announced that Ryan Parada is now joining the organization as a full-time employee.

His title is manager of government affairs and he will work on both federal and state issues for the organization. Last November, the organization announced that Parada had joined the organization as a graduate intern.

“We are excited to continue to expand our government affairs team to reflect new challenges and priorities for the association,” said Joshua Habursky, head of government affairs for PCA, in a press release. “Ryan has shown his capabilities as a contractor, and everyone is enthusiastic about him joining the team full-time.”
