Board Member Responsibilities

HCGA is structured to have a governing board; not a working board. A governing board focuses on financial oversight, organizational governance, and setting the mission and vision of the organization.  

Below is a quick glance of board responsibilities. The bylaws are posted online at hcga.co.

Board meets a minimum of once every quarter.

Board members must be willing to include photo and bio for the website.

Board members must sign a code of conduct.

Board members must be current members of HCGA.

Board members chair committees.

Board votes to approve new board members.

Any officer may be removed, either with or without cause, by a supermajority vote at any time.

Any officer may resign at any time by giving written a notice to the Board of Directors and or to the E.D.

20% of directors may be composed of members who do not legally hold ownership of cannabis-licensed businesses (Allied Industry Businesses). For example on a 5-7 person board, there may be at least one (1) non-cannabis industry board member, on a 7-11 person board there may be at least two (2) non-cannabis industry board members.

There shall be no fewer than 3 (three) and no more than 11 (eleven) directors.

The Board of Directors will appoint new directors as needed and/or when seats open.

Any vacancies caused by death, resignation, removal, disqualification, or otherwise, of any officer may be filled by the Board, if and when necessary.

Officers of the corporation are Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. Officers are elected by the Board of Directors and serve one–year terms.
