A few more notes as we get ready to close out 2021….
CONVERSION TO A 501c3 – WE ARE NON-PROFIT!
Our non-profit status is opening doors to meetings, information, and influence. As a non-profit EMC/Members gain perception as the good guys and thus gain invitations to meetings, to speak, to roundtables, etc. EMC/Members are seen as educating and driving access to a full set of fair and compliant financial services. We are excited about what the future holds with this new status.
Speaking, sponsoring, hosting, etc. As a 501c3, EMC is able to gain access, and to negotiate much different rates – including at investor, government, cannabis, banking/payments/insurance, and social impact events. EMC Members gain invites to speak, attend, sponsor – either free or at discounts vs commercial rates.
CREATING NATIONAL STANDARDS – CASH MANAGEMENT
Partnering with NACB who already has 8 nationally recognized cannabis standards, EMC members have worked in conjunction with NACB to craft the new cash management standards. This month starts the Payments standards. As EMC founders did in past lives – the industry coalition setting standards gives a roadmap/bar for workable legislation & regulation. In the past, our checklists turned up as the examiner checklists. Same goal here – to gain a powerful voice in rule making. To voice your vote in adopting the cash management standards (through NACB’s voting form) please click here.
CALL TO ACTION! EMC MEMBERS
