They including Nathan Mison – Fire & Flower, Board Chair; Ashley Newman – Queen of Bud, Vice Chair; Gerald Proctor – Sundial Growers Inc., Board Treasurer; Jeff Mooij – 420 Investments, Board Secretary; and Jesse Beaudry – Candre Cannabis Inc.

“The unified voice we have created with ACC will help us educate in a responsible, safe and transparent manner as well as advocate with stakeholders and government on key issues,” said Michelle Russell, Executive Director. “We are very proud of the team we have built, with representatives from all over the cannabis sector, including retailers and LPs.”
