NCIA Accepting Applications For 2024-2026 Board of Directors Term

NCIA is now accepting applications for eligible candidates to apply for the board through Friday, November 17, 2023.

The National Cannabis Industry Association is a nonprofit organization run for and by its membership, so we hope you’ll consider this opportunity to apply for a seat on the NCIA Board.

Serving on NCIA’s Board of Directors is no small task. Board members are responsible for overseeing the strategic direction of the largest and most influential cannabis industry organization in the country. Board Members are also responsible for building membership, fundraising, and ensuring that NCIA continues to be the strongest force advocating for the fair and equal treatment of the industry on Capitol Hill.

Annual Board Selection Process

Current NCIA members in good standing are eligible to apply for a seat on the board. NCIA members who are interested and qualified to serve on our board are encouraged to submit an application for review by our nominating committee before the November 10 deadline.

Candidates may apply directly for a board position during the open application process. The application form asks for information about the candidate’s professional background, unique talents, skills, and viewpoints, and ability to contribute or raise financial resources for NCIA. Candidates must be fiduciaries of a NCIA member-business or be designated by a company fiduciary to serve on our board. 

Who Qualifies To Run For A Board Position?

To be considered for a seat on the board, a candidate must be a fiduciary (e.g. owner, president, CEO) of a current member business at any level of membership or must be a representative of the business that has been appointed to serve by a fiduciary. Candidates must submit an application online by November 10.

What Are The Requirements For An NCIA Board Member?

Board members serve two-year terms and are responsible for overseeing the association’s overall strategy and budget, assisting in the development of strategic relationships, and serving as ambassadors of NCIA, which represents hundreds of member businesses. In general, the NCIA board meets in person twice and conducts 3-4 additional video conferences per year.

How Are The Board Positions Selected?

Once the application period closes, NCIA’s Nominations Committee will convene to carefully review and score all applications. The committee will ultimately select a slate of nominees to fill eight (8) available board seats that are best suited to bring additional talent, resources, and diversity to our growing organization, based on their qualifications.

Our Nominating Committee will comprise the chairs of our 14 member committees as well as a select number of current board members whose terms are not expiring this year. Once the Nominating Committee selects the slate of eight members will be notified at the end of this year.
