We are the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Association (NCIHA) - a 501(c)(6) trade organization that represents all the stakeholders helping to build a thriving hemp industry in North Carolina. The NCIHA is not only responsible for the lobbying effort behind the passage of the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Pilot Program, but also for providing continuing industry education, training, and updated information for all members. We have recently reorganized our membership levels and set our Annual Meeting date for Friday, December 7th at the Chatham County Agricultural Center in Pittsboro. I strongly encourage you to join today - as a unified voice, we are stronger together.

Blake Butler
Executive Director, NC Industrial Hemp Association
