4 Board Members Join NCIA

Four new directors will join the board of the National Cannabis Industry Association, a member-based organization that lobbies on behalf of marijuana businesses.

Aaron Justis of Buds & Roses Collective, Kristopher Krane of 4Front Advisors, Lakisha Jenkins of the California Cannabis Industry Association and Lance Ott of Guardian Data Systems will serve on the board of directors for the 2014-16 term.  Seven current board members were also re-elected.

Executives from companies that rank as “sustaining” members of NCIA can run for a seat on the board. Two dozen candidates were in the running this year for 11 open slots, with finalists chosen by current members.

Board members must contribute at least $5,000 annually to either NCIA or the organization’s federal political action committee. They also must pay annual their sustaining membership dues of $500 a month or $5,000 annually.
