Member Blog Submission Guidelines

Here are the guidelines for you to consider when formulating a topic to pitch. We will work with you during the editing process and we are available to you if you want to talk about honing in on how to convey a particular topic to meet our audience’s needs.

  • NCIA encourages member companies and allied nonprofit organizations to submit educational posts for the NCIA Blog.
  • Member posts are original content, educational in nature, and directed toward an audience of cannabis business professionals.
  • NCIA will only accept content that has not been published elsewhere already.
  • Member posts are an average of 800 – 1,000 words and may contain external links, images, video, and other forms of content.
  • While it is assumed that members writing guest posts will reference their member company and provide resources created by the company, the NCIA blog is not a forum for company advertisements. Pitches and advertisement-heavy posts will not be accepted for publication.
  • All posts are subject to editing by NCIA staff and become the property of NCIA upon publication.
  • Posts may be shared by the author or NCIA through social media, email, or external media.
  • Please submit via Google Docs with title, content, and author/company bio. Separately email an image attachments including author headshots.
  • Annual NCIA members are able to submit one blog per month (depending on availability) and monthly/quarterly members are able to submit one blog post per quarter.
