Registration is complimentary for members and 15% off for non-members
NCIA’s increasingly popular Cannabis Caucuses are intimate meet and greet events that pop up in eight of the most burgeoning cannabis markets every quarter. We launched this event series two years ago so that our members can get in touch with NCIA staff, make connections with other industry professionals and learn about important federal policy updates impacting our industry.
One of the many benefits of NCIA membership is complimentary access to all of our 32 Quarterly Cannabis Caucus events a year. Even better, depending on your membership level, your NCIA membership could grant up to five of your colleagues complimentary access as well. This is equivalent to $375 worth of tickets! If you’re an NCIA member and you aren’t taking the opportunity to attend these events, it’s money left on the table.
If you’re not an NCIA member, you can still get 15% off your registration by taking advantage of our early bird sales ending midnight tonight (September 10)! If you do the math and realize that becoming an NCIA member grants you unlimited access to these events plus more, then join today and we’ll credit $50 toward your membership dues.

You’ll make meaningful connections with industry leaders
During last quarter’s events, more than 1,000 attendees turned out for our 32 events nationwide. This means that although these events are growing increasingly popular, they are still small enough to make meaningful connections with other industry leaders in your region. Instead of just making small talk with someone in passing, you’ll get to to have real conversations with some of the most influential leaders in the industry. Year after year, we hear about people striking business partnerships, friendships and impactful connections at these events because they offer the time, space and opportunity to do so.
NCIA convenes industry influencers
As the largest national trade association in the U.S. and the only organization representing more than 1,700 cannabis-related businesses at the national level, we have pretty deep connections. We know that 70 percent of the individuals who attend Cannabis Caucuses have executive level decision-making authority and 30 percent have heavy decision-making influence. All of this is to say that the caliber of the meaningful connections you will make have the potential to benefit your business in very real ways and quickly. We also know that these boutique events are frequently attended by industry pioneers and dedicated policy reform advocates, the movers and shakers of the industry, who have helped support the movement for decades.
Simplified, accurate federal and regional policy updates
For many people, federal policy developments can seem a bit dry and/or overly complex. However, in our industry, understanding and staying current on the changing tides of policies can make or break your business. At Cannabis Caucuses, we’ll break down all of the recent federal policy issues you need to know in order to protect your business. Better yet, our intel is coming straight from our Government Relations team on the Hill. Consider this your opportunity for simplified, accurate federal policy insights to inform your business strategy.
At every event, we also recruit influential policy makers, government officials, or industry executives as guest speakers to shed light on important regional issues. Take the opportunity to meet the guest speakers afterwards to ask questions during the nearly two hours worth of networking. When else would you get this opportunity?
This might not be one your boss cares so much about, but we do. Your registration includes hors d’oeuvres, plus enjoy drinks from a cash bar in a really relaxed, sophisticated setting. Consider it a happy hour with new friends and future colleagues.
Repeatedly, we hear from guests that these events are their favorite because of the quality of the event, the attendees and the sense of community and camaraderie they foster.
