What are the benefits of membership?
The qualitative benefits of joining a trade organization are significant and include:
1. A unified political voice for lawmakers to hear and consult.
2. Largest networking opportunity in WA to connect with others in the movement.
3. To become a history maker as we continue to mature the standards and governing branches. We are following professions like, lawyers, engineers and realtors who in the absence of regulation they created their own. Each of these entities who can date back over 100 years and are in existence today and play a vital role in their respective industries.
4. A series of speakers comprised of national cannabis experts freely share their expertise with CCSE members in an effort to accelerate WA knowledge and further the best possible practices and laws.
