Directory provides vetted list of Financial Institutions (FIs) that serve the cannabis industry ahead of annual conference for industry executives
WASHINGTON, Aug. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — “We need a bank – who will work with us?” is a common question across the cannabis industry. The Cannabis Banking Directory, published by the PBC Conference team, is a direct response to this question. Dubbed The Green Pages, the Directory lists 40 Financial Institutions (FIs) that serve the cannabis industry and gave PBC Conference approval to be listed. Additional FIs chose to not be listed for a variety of reasons. This inaugural edition is a free resource (https://www.pbcconference.com/cannabis-banking-directory) and will help make it easier for cannabis operators and all cannabis-related businesses (CRBs) to find access to banking options across the nation.
PBC Conference CEO, Joshua Radbod, sums up his organization’s core mission as “helping Financial Institutions, CRBs, Government and Partners find each other, connect, and grow together.“
The Cannabis Banking Directory is one of several industry resources offered by PBC. Their premier offering is a two-day conference held in Washington, D.C. that brings together executives in the cannabis banking industry, as well as those working across cannabis compliance, legislation, regulation, and in ancillary businesses that address seed-to-sale tracking, cannabis data, 280E taxes, HR & Payroll, and insurance.
Attendees hear the latest from Regulators and Legislators during Keynote Speeches by Congresswomen, a Senator, IRS Commissioners, an NFL Athlete, a Lieutenant Governor, and a National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Member. After participating in engaging panel sessions with cannabis industry executives, attendees browse leading solutions in the exhibit area, and end each day networking with clients, partners, and peers during PBC hosted happy hours.
