Patrick Hammond takes seat on NCIA Banking Committee


Oct 20 2018

LINX is proud to announce that our CEO, Patrick Hammond, has joined the National Cannabis Industry Association’s Banking Access Committee (BAC).

The BAC is a vital tool for ensuring that those in the cannabis sector are treated fairly under state and local laws, and advocates strongly for improved engagement with financial institutions. Patrick’s role will focus on sharing his expertise regarding payment technology and compliant banking.

“It is an honor to be sitting on the BAC,” said Hammond, “The committee, and the NCIA as a whole, does amazing work throughout an industry that provides tens of millions in tax revenue, as well as tens of thousands of jobs. However, as a cash-intensive business, it continues to face considerable – and unique – challenges. It is our goal to address these as best we can.”
