I’m excited to announce that the Medical Cannabis Symposium and Career Fair will be held at the Embassy Suites in Albuquerque New Mexico on August 23-24, 2019. This is our fourth Medical Cannabis Symposium and this year we’ve decided to take it to another level, combining the platform with our (Fall Harvest) Career Fair. The theme for this 2-day event is “Breaking the Stigma”, bringing advocate professionals together with cannabis and hemp businesses for careers, education, advocacy, and community.
At this event New Mexicans will have access to new careers. Cannabis NM Staffing provides recruitment and human resources development for many of the hiring companies operating in the local cannabis and hemp space. Attendance at our past Career Fair has meant the start of a new job or business for many up and coming professionals. In April we had over 1000 people attend to meet with the hiring companies we brought to the table! By reserving your tickets today you could be manifesting your chance to meet your future boss, business partner, or to gain the education needed to become that stepping stone to the next part of your journey.
The VIP PASS is the best way to reserve your seat in the auditorium on day two. Seating will be limited to 150 student-guests who will engage in SIX Courses on medical, civics, legal, safety and customer service topics for a Certificate in Advocacy and an Industry Customer Service Pin. From there the VIP PASS will also give the pass-holder access for FREE to a regularly $120 program online at the Cannabis Training Center. Advocate-students will walk away with a chance to earn over eight industry designations or certifications to credential themselves for the field. Due to the need for education and a professional platform in the industry our events have become a solid go-to for those who are looking for a bridge or “portal” into the cannabis industry.
Our networks stretch across the state and into the southwest. For this reason we have some of the top companies coming out to vend, hire and network with us. New Mexico Hemp Company will be with us to hire Lab Techs, Clone Propagators, Farm Techs, and Extractionists. Those companies who sign up to support this event represent the most professional in the marketplace. Our booth space always sells out with companies wanting in at the last minute. We are encouraging companies to RSVP here to reserve a space as soon as possible.
If you are an advocate, an industry professional, a newbie, entrepreneur or a company rep you should be at this weekend of jam packed marijuana activism. We need your help to continue to break the stigma and educate New Mexico about our community. I look forward to seeing you there!
