The National Cannabis Industry Association is pleased to announce the official launch of its new Allied Associations Program (AAP) designed to facilitate cooperation and assistance to state and local trade organizations representing the cannabis industry. The AAP provides the means for the leaders and staffs of NCIA and Allied Associations to learn from, work with, and support each other in their mutual efforts to build the cannabis industry within the states and across the country.
The ultimate goal of the AAP is to develop closer relationships between NCIA with state, local, and sector-specific trade associations to harness our collective knowledge, and work together to advance the cannabis industry. As the only national trade association for the cannabis industry, NCIA is uniquely qualified and positioned to help those trade associations thrive and be as effective as possible for their memberships.
Allied Associations will be able to participate in complimentary workshops and information sessions hosted by NCIA, as well as monthly updates on NCIA’s work and any relevant legal or policy updates. Organizations will receive complimentary tickets to NCIA’s regular events and will get exclusive discount codes to all events to share with their members. The first workshop will take place during the upcoming 5th Annual Cannabis Business Summit in San Jose, CA on July 25-27.
