I don't get out to a lot of events, but I try to get to as many National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) events as possible. NCIA is not only the leading national advocacy group for the emerging cannabis industry (I think they are the only one!), but they also do an amazing job at the local level too. One example of that is the upcoming Quarterly Cannabis Caucus events that are being held all over America. One of the locations is Portland, Oregon, which I plan on attending on April 12. I hope to see you there! Below is more information about the event in Portland:
The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), the only national trade association for legal marijuana businesses in the U.S., will host an Oregon Cannabis Caucus on Tuesday, April 12, in Portland. The Cannabis Caucus is an educational and networking event designed to update cannabis professionals on the latest in policy and industry developments, while helping connect local cannabis business leaders.
Featured speakers for the event include Jake Oken-Berg from the Office of Sen. Jeff Merkley, Heather Smyth of MJ Freeway, and Taylor West of NCIA.
NCIA's Quarterly Cannabis Caucus event series educates, connects, and inspires attendees, with a customized state and federal policy briefing and meaningful networking opportunities with regional and national industry leaders. The Cannabis Caucuses are held in the cannabis industry's twelve most active regions during the first month of each quarter.
This event is FREE for current NCIA members and open to other cannabis industry professionals for a donation of $50.
