VANCOUVER, Washington­ – The Hemp Industries Association announces the appointment of two new members to its Board of Directors: Julie Lerner, Founder & CEO of PanXchange, Inc., a web-based negotiation and trading platform for physical commodities; and Rob Davidson, CEO of CURE Pharmaceuticals, a vertically-integrated drug delivery and development company.

“We are excited to welcome Julie and Rob to the leadership of the HIA,” said Jody McGinness, Executive Director for the Hemp Industries Association, “Their breadth of knowledge, professional expertise, and passion for the plant will elevate our effectiveness as an organization and strengthen our capacity to address the unique challenges that stand between what the U.S. hemp industry is today, and what it can and should be.”

The HIA Board of Directors voted to appoint the two new members to fill vacant seats with terms ending in 2022, marking another significant step in a process of organizational transformation begun earlier this year.
