The National Cannabis Industry Association’s annual board election begins April 30. As the only national trade association for the cannabis industry, NCIA prides itself on the democratic system it employs to select the Board of Directors who are tasked with overseeing the organization’s budget and strategic plan.
Any current Sustaining NCIA member may run for a seat on the board with the nomination of any other member. Nominations for board candidates are being accepted through this online form.
NCIA’s Board of Directors is made up of 20 elected positions and the executive director, who is hired by and reports to the board. Elected members serve two-year terms and elections are staggered with eleven of the 20 seats open this year. A list of current board members is available online.
The online ballot will open to members from Wednesday, April 30 until midnight Eastern Time on Friday, May 16. NCIA utilizes a weighted voting system. Each member business can cast one vote. That vote is then weighted according to membership status. A Sponsoring member’s vote carries twice the weight of a basic member’s vote and a Sustaining member is weighted at five times that of a basic member.
More information about the board election, including a voter guide with candidate information, will be made available to our membership in the weeks ahead.
