I know not everybody votes in the AMIA election, BUT there are a number of people who are eligible to vote but haven't yet. I am getting decent returns, but if you received an invitation to register and vote and are waiting for the last minute to cast you ballot.
It is the last minute.
It just takes a second and if the industry we manage is to be vital and valid, then we have to be involved. That means taking advantage of putting people that we want into the positions we feel are going to advance your agenda.
People often ask what the AMIA provides it's membership for the dues and I will address that in depth in a future post, but the truth is the fact that we run a fair and open election for the membership to elect the people that they want to help and guide the cannabis industry in Alaska is really huge. And I know that we haven't been tooting our own horn enough, but we are making huge strides forward. There was an action by the board to start getting out into the chapters and hold meetings just explaining what the AMIA is all about and what you are spending you money on. We are working hard to help the Industry, be watching for the meeting in your chapters, soon.
