Host Bethany Moore, NCIA’s Communications Manager and host of NCIA’s weekly Podcast ‘NCIA’s Cannabis Industry Voice‘ brings you an in-depth look at what is happening across the country in federal cannabis policy reform and with NCIA.
From the top, Bethany discusses the NCIA #CannabisIsEssential movement, coordinating efforts between our communications, public policy, and government relations teams. We have been hard at work, exploring avenues for the legal cannabis industry to access federal COVID relief benefits, like including SAFE Banking language in the recent HEROES Act.
We check in with NCIA Deputy Director of Public Policy, Rachel Kurtz, to hear some of the recent highlights from our Allied Associations Program. Fortunately, most states have deemed cannabis as essential, and our state associations are working in their areas to make relief options, or commerce opportunities, easier to reach.
Kim Kovacs, President of the Arcview Group, checks in with Bethany to discuss the relaunch of their Women’s Investors Network. The cannabis industry leads on women in C-suite and leadership roles, but that doesn’t mean we can be complacent. ArcView has been offering regular webinars, and other digital programming options, for women energetic about entering the space. The next will be looking at the science behind the plant, join the conversation!
We’ll see you next month for NCIA Today!
