The Hudson Valley Cannabis Industry Association (HVCIA), co-founded by Andrew Schriever, will hold its launch event on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at HudCo in Dobbs Ferry, New York.

The event will cover topics on proposed legislation, how the legal market will be structured, and what you will likely need to have in place to get off to a successful start. Industry peers will have the opportunity to meet and establish relationships in this emerging market and raise questions or concerns to identify common goals and obstacles.

Andrew Schriever, Partner and Co-Chair of the firm’s Litigation Practice, is a co-founder of the New York City Cannabis Industry Association (NYCCIA) and the Hudson Valley Cannabis Industry Association (HVCIA). Andrew serves as Special Advisor of the NYCCIA and serves as President of the HVCIA.

The purpose of the NYCCIA and HVCIA is to create and promote best practices while working in the emerging cannabis industry and coordinate with local communities through education and dialogue. The Associations will help advocate for regulation that allows for a legal, responsible adult use cannabis program, and for the improvement of New York’s medical cannabis, hemp and CBD programs, with the goal of fostering relationships with community leaders, stakeholders, and decision-makers to comprehensively and effectively communicate the needs and priorities of the market while being respectful of legitimate community concerns.
