Women History Month Highlight - Board of Directors

CCIA Honors our Women Board Leaders!

In celebration of Women’s History Month, CCIA would like to highlight the extraordinary leadership found on our Board of Directors. Democratically elected by our membership, our board helps shape the trajectory of our work, engages in community and coalition building, and helps promote sensible policy reform on behalf of our members and the legal cannabis industry as a whole.
Representing 65% of our board, and 75% of the executive committee, these women are the backbone of the most influential trade cannabis association in the state. We are grateful for their steadfast and thoughtful leadership!

Stay tuned as we honor more of our dynamic women leaders throughout Women’s History Month.
