Smoke-free Meetings - Tobacco Control Research: Cancer Control and Population Sciences -

Easy to use tools for NCI meeting planners and contractors

Find out if your location is smoke-free

In July 2006, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) announced a new smoke-free meeting policy requiring that all meetings and conferences organized or primarily sponsored by NCI be held in a state, county, city, or town that has adopted a comprehensive smoke-free policy.

For purposes of meeting planning, NCI considers a jurisdiction (state, county, city, or town) smoke-free if it provides employees and the general public complete or near complete protection from secondhand smoke in enclosed workplaces, including restaurants.

The "meets requirement" data is based on whether both workplaces and restaurants within the jurisdiction are considered smoke-free.
