Six board incumbents were re-elected this year and three new board members will be joining the leadership team following the election:
Michael Steinmetz of Flow Kana, one of California’s most innovative companies dedicated to sustainability and empowering craft cannabis farmers.
“We are thrilled to be part of the NCIA board to ensure that the United States does not fall behind in the growing global cannabis conversations. With the continued end to prohibition throughout the country, it is imperative that all the legalized states come together to help bring clear policies to the federal level.”
Mark Passerini of Om of Medicine, a long-time NCIA member and the first board member to be elected from Michigan.
“It is an honor to serve this industry and movement in the capacity of NCIA board member! NCIA will have a tremendous amount of influence on the growth and direction of the cannabis space over the next few critical years. I am humbled to be a part of this community and will vow to do everything I can to make this industry the most successful, ethical, respected, and innovative it can be! I look forward to representing the Midwest as we tear down the wall of cannabis prohibition brick by brick.”
Taylor West of COHNNABIS, leading public relations professional and former NCIA deputy director.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunity to help guide NCIA into the future. I know first-hand how hard NCIA works on behalf of its members. Together with the staff and the other incredible leaders on the board, we’re going to keep building the organization to its fullest potential, both as a powerful voice for the industry and as a valuable business community.”
The new board members-elect will join the NCIA executive director and the nine other elected members at the next board meeting.
