As our organization celebrates its one-year anniversary, we also celebrate some big news; we are changing our name from Celebrate Cannabis to Cascade Cannabis Association. We feel this better represents our mission to unite and serve the cannabis business community in Central Oregon, and will allow us to do more in 2019.
We have the same Mission Statement and Initiatives:
Our mission at Cascade Cannabis Association is to unify and give voice to the legal cannabis community and shine a light on the positive impact this industry is having on Central Oregon. Our mission is achieved by focusing on three initiatives: Education, Collaboration and Celebration.
To Educate, Cascade Cannabis Association will continue to provide information to the community about current happenings in cannabis business, news and regulations. We will also continue to promote opportunities within the industry through networking events (more on events below!) and act as a resource for responsible adult use education.
To Collaborate, we provide a platform for the cannabis and hemp industry to communicate and make connections. We are working to develop innovative partnerships with other non-profit organizations, local law enforcement, community leaders, and the OLCC.
To Celebrate, we have planned some great events for the year that will lay the foundation to start community conversations that will fuel collaborative work.
- Start by saving the date for our Members-Only Anniversary Party on March 6 at Substance Coffee in Bend; this invite is only for CCA members so make sure to renew or sign up now.
- Throughout the year we will also host some casual cannabis networking events and workshops taught by our expert members.
- In the fall we welcome everyone to join us for another Highly Enlightened Discussions, which is an industry networking event with Ted style cannabis talks.
