IWC’s 2015 Spring Networking Event A Huge Success!

The swank Morgan Manufacturing party room was filled with a diverse crowd of Illinois cultivation center and dispensary operators, owners of ancillary businesses, cannabis policy experts, and people looking to get involved in Illinois’ newest industry.  Rep. Lou Lang (D-Skokie) spoke to the crowd about the Illinois pilot program and the need to extend the Pilot Program now so that it gets a full 4 years in operation.  Various women already involved in Illinois’ industry also spoke about what they are doing and how they got involved.  Thanks to everyone who attended and made it such an enjoyable event. We look forward to seeing you at the next one!  Below are some photos from the event.
