OXFORD, FLORIDA, SEPTEMBER 02, 2020 — Increased consumer demand and state-level regulation can make the cannabis industry complex to navigate, which is why the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) taps a variety of experts to help create a responsible cannabis industry.

Jill Droge, ImEPIK’s Chief Creative and Business Development Executive was recently appointed to the NCIA’s Marketing and Advertising Committee. She brings decades of business experience as well as her perspective as an online training provider.

“It’s a privilege to be in a position where I can provide a unique perspective on the industry,” Droge said. “Things change quickly, and the promotion of safe, responsible cannabis can be tricky at times. I look forward to collaborating to establish industry-specific best practices for marketing responsible cannabis.”

During her career Droge has developed several businesses. She worked for nearly three decades in the telecommunications industry, as both a vice president overseeing a multi-state territory for Verizon, and as the owner/operator of a statewide group of retail cellular phone stores. Droge also consults globally on a wide variety of topics related to business development. She joined ImEPIK in 2019.
