Maureen McNamara
Chair of the NCIA’s State Regulations Committee and Founder & Chief Facilitator @Cannabis Trainers
Maureen McNamara wants to live in a world where compliance is a smile inducing word and cannabis prohibition is as out of style as the rotary phone.

She has led thousands of workshops and inspires cannabis industry professionals to create and sell products compliantly and professionally. With 20+ years of professional training experience, Maureen has trained and certified 15,000+ employees, managers and owners in national certification programs.
