The National Hemp Growers Cooperative is in its “pre-launch” stage of becoming a board-driven organization. We have common stockholders (who are voting members) and preferred stock holders and have created a unique business model. Until we have a duly constituted Board of Directors, we have implemented an Advisory Board to help guide us and to ensure we have diverse voices giving us wise counsel. If you would like to receive more information on our structure please email our National Membership Coordinator Max Howell at m.howell@nationalhempcoop.us
