The California Cannabis Industry Association regretfully announces the resignation of our Deputy Director, Sean Donahoe, who has moved on to pursue other professional opportunities. The entire Board and staff owe a debt of gratitude to Sean for his selfless service and contributions to this organization. Since Sean joined the staff in January 2013, CCIA has quickly become the leading trade association representing the cannabis industry in the halls of our state capitol--this is due in no small part to Sean’s work. Sean has tirelessly traveled this state promoting our organization and the interests of our industry. As a result, Sean leaves this organization in the strongest position it has ever been.
Of all of Sean's colleagues, perhaps no one knows his many contributions better than our Executive Director Nate Bradley. "Sean and I spent 7 days a week for a year straight building CCIA. Sean astutely guided CCIA through Sacramento 'capitol society' in a way that allowed us to position our industry as responsible and credible stakeholders in crafting sensible and sustainable medical cannabis regulations--CCIA would not be what it is today without his work over the last two years," said Nate.
Thank you, Sean, and best wishes in all your pursuits in the drug policy reform movement and beyond.
