National Cannabis Industry Association Will Launch at the World's Largest Cannabis Lifestyle ConventionSalem-News.com
NCIA specifically works with cannabis businesses
(WASHINGTON D.C.) - The National Cannabis Industry Association, the first national organization dedicated to advancing the interests of cannabis-related businesses, will formally launch its operations this week in Denver, Colorado. On Thursday, December 16, the leaders of association, hailing from states across the country, will gather for NCIA’s first board meeting and will set the organization’s agenda for the coming year.
“This is an historic time for the cannabis industry and we are excited to have the opportunity to help so many small businesses advance their interests,” said Aaron Smith, NCIA’s executive director.
“NCIA’s board is comprised of some of the true leaders in the industry and they are dedicated to seeing the industry flourish in a manner that benefits all cannabis consumers. We are past the point of debating whether cannabis should be a legal product in this country. The truth is that it is a legal product in many states and it is time to treat individuals involved in the industry the same as all other business people.”
In the days immediately following the board meeting, many NCIA leaders will take part in the Kush Con II convention. Billing the event as the “World’s Largest Cannabis Lifestyle Convention,” organizers are expecting tens of thousands of attendees, who will be able to listen to speakers, enjoy musicians and other entertainment, and visit more than 400 vendor booths, representing the diversity of the cannabis industry.
"It is no coincidence that NCIA’s first meeting is being held in Denver just before Kush Con II,” added Smith.
“This convention will bring together hundreds of small business involved in the cannabis industry. In a time of stagnant economic growth, it will be a demonstration of the growing strength and vitality of the industry. Our goal is to speak with as many of these business owners as possible and encourage them to join our association. Collectively, we will be a force impossible to ignore in Washington.”
The mission of the National Cannabis Industry Association is to defend, promote and advance the interests of the cannabis industry and its members.
NCIA publicly advocates for the unique needs of the emerging cannabis industry and defends against those aiming to eliminate the legal market for cannabis and cannabis-related products.
