Steering Committee + Founding Member Brands

Promoting the highest standards of professionalism, credibility, and equity in the cannabis industry.

GFI Steering Committee Members

GF Institute consists of three independent Steering Committees that incorporate many of the cannabis industry’s most respected leaders and companies. 

The Steering Committees support, guide, and validate the curriculum of the certificate programs, designed to create an industry filled with educated and skilled cannabis talent.

GF Institute Founding Membership

In 2021, we started the Founding Member program to give partner brands across the nation an opportunity to help us develop and promote the GFI credentials. 

Today, the Founding Member program represents a community of brands who recognized the importance of standards to drive and support the mission and values of GF Institute even before federal legalization arrives.

Together, we will continue to promote cannabis education, promote equitable opportunity and experience at all levels throughout the cannabis supply chain, and conduct business between each other and the public as professionals.

Founding Member brands are authorized to display the GF Institute Founding Member Brand Badge on their website to display these commitments publicly.

Below, you will find an up-to-date list of our advisory council members, steering committee members, and founding member brands.
