The cannabis lawyer group is going to ask for a significantly higher amount from its members
Lawyers who are involved with the National Cannabis Bar Association (NCBA) need to prepare to pay more for their memberships. The organization has announced that, on November 18, it will be seeking a hefty increase in the membership dues. That gives every member just two days to update their subscriptions and pay a renewal fee to lock in their current rate for another year.
According to a press release by the NCBA, “NCBA is incredibly proud of our membership, your engagement with the association, and the growth we have shown over the past year. In an effort to further expand our services to you, we have reached a point when we must increase the price of our annual membership.
“On November 18, just following our Las Vegas Solicitors’ Soiree, the price of annual membership will increase from $200 to $350.
The organization plans to put the money to good use. It says that it will be able to offer more networking events, expand its educational offerings, provide greater discounts on conferences and services and increase its presence in the cannabis industry.
The NCBA was founded in 2015 to create a platform for lawyers that could be used to assist them with marijuana legislation and questions. It hosts a number of educational events – both in-person and online – for lawyers, as well as leading participation in marijuana conferences and seminars across the U.S. It also works closely with NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) and some of its members are also directly part of the NORML chain.
