The Committee’s core mission is to facilitate a forum to promote education on claims and litigation management relative to all aspects of the cannabis industry including current legal and regulatory compliance, claims handling and litigation management best practices that are unique to this highly regulated industry and related underwriting issues. As the risks and insurance needs of licensed cannabis companies cross multiple legal areas and all insurance lines, much greater attention to its impacts on insurance is necessary for this expending sector of the economy. The Committee will educate CLM membership to effectively manage claims and litigation in this challenging regulatory environment.

We are still looking for a CLM Fellow (industry professional) to join as co-presenter for the committee's April 8th webinar. Here’s a brief (working) description:  

"This webinar would be a discussion of impact of marijuana legalization in the workplace. It would include a brief overview of relevant laws, how said laws may impact an employer and claims handling as well as where we see the law progressing and how claims representatives can keep up with those changes."
Stephanie Burnstein of Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney, Ltd.
