Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to Speak at National Industrial Hemp Council (NIHC) 2019 Hemp Business Summit
WASHINGTON, DC, July 11, 2019- The NIHC is pleased to announce Lowell Schiller as a keynote speaker at the National Industrial Hemp Council’s 2019 Business Summit. The meeting will be held August 12-13, in Portland, Oregon.
- Lowell Schiller, principal associate commissioner, FDA
- Edwin “Ed” Elfmann, senior vice president, agricultural and rural banking policy at American Bankers Association (ABA).
- Lucy Infeld, associate, and Chris Strunk, counsel, Beveridge and Diamond
The summit features several sessions and presentations, including a unique in-depth discussion from ABA’s Ed Elfmann on “Banking and You – Understanding the current banking situation around industrial hemp, credit, loans, transactions and regulations.”
The rift between federal and state law has left banks trapped between their mission to serve the financial needs of their local communities and the threat of federal enforcement action. Attend to hear more from the ABA’s perspective.
Lucy Infeld, associate, and Christopher Strunk, counsel for Beveridge & Diamond, will speak about “The Current Legal Regulatory Framework on Industrial Hemp”. Their presentation will discuss the road to success and profitability, while considering how to manage the minefield of legal and regulatory information overload in this ever-changing industry.
