The Coachella Valley Cannabis Alliance Network (CVCAN), is a trade organization created to prioritize growth and overcome challenges facing the legal cannabis industry. Members (125 and growing daily) are businesses working in the supply chain of the cannabis industry, ancillary businesses supporting it, local governments, and interested individuals. They have come together and have put the Coachella Valley on the map as the most progressive place to open and grow a cannabis business in California. And we certainly believe this is the case right now!
CVCAN is proud to be the National Cannabis Industry Association’s (NCIA) Official Allied Association for the Coachella Valley, and is also allied with the California Cannabis Industry Association (CCIA) for the same purpose. By working with these state and national organizations, they can most effectively amplify the voices of their members to advocate for the needs of our legal cannabis industry here in the Coachella Valley.
The Coachella Valley Cannabis Alliance Networks mission statement is to provide a responsible and productive voice for the cannabis industry through innovative and effective programs in networking, development, operations, regulations, and outreach.
If you are in, or interested in, the cannabis industry, you should consider joining the Coachella Valley Cannabis Alliance Network, you will stand strong alongside others representing the cannabis industry who are committed to bringing credibility and best practices to the industry. Members enjoy enhanced advocacy support, exceptional networking opportunities, added brand visibility, as well as access to current industry trends.
CVCAN hosts monthly local networking events. These meetings are designed for cultivators, retailers, distributors, cannabis brands, local government officials and ancillary services to have the opportunity to network and share in the latest trends of the industry.
CVCAN’s next Networking dinner will be on Monday, May 6th at Woodhaven Country Club from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. Complimentary access for one is included with membership, or if you would like to attend once before joining, tickets are $29.99 at the door for a delicious dinner and access to over 100 attendees who are active in the cannabis industry locally and throughout California.
Members of CVCAN not only gain access to these valuable monthly networking dinners, but also have the opportunity to sponsor said dinners and other CVCAN events to help increase their brand awareness.
Such events include the upcoming 1st Annual CVCAN Charity Golf Tournament in partnership with the Desert Cancer Foundation. The event takes place on Saturday May 11, with 7am registration and 8am shotgun start at Woodhaven Country Club in beautiful Palm Desert, California. Whether you enjoy golf, would like to support a good cause, or are interested in displaying your product / services to hundreds of associated local people, you should join us at the CVCAN Charity Golf Tournament benefitting the Desert Cancer Foundations breast cancer fund in honor of mother’s day.
