The key to any association is the people that make up the network. From commercial cannabis business owners and Risk Officers to lawyers and banking professionals and all who fall in between, we are proud of the diverse and expanding network of professionals and experts who are our members. To show our appreciation for the exceptional individuals in our community, we are highlighting Dede Perkins this week. Please reach out and connect with her,!

Dede is the CEO of ProCanna, a compliance and operational platform specifically designed for the cannabis industry. ProCanna is an intelligent tool that improves compliance and eases the pain of maintaining it across any cannabis organization. It is an end-to-end regulations and brand standards solution that minimizes mistakes, empowers employees, and delivers real-time analysis and actionable insights for advisors, managers, and executives. Clients use ProCanna to prepare for growth, entry into new states, get control of SOPs and training, track operations, implement an internal auditing system, and more.  

Dede joined the cannabis industry in 2013 as a member of the application team that won one of the first competitive vertically integrated applications in Massachusetts. After that, she helped win cannabis licenses in New York, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, California, Arkansas, North Dakota, and Nevada. A regulatory specialist, Dede is passionate about combining compliance with operational excellence; safe, standardized products; empowered employees; strong company culture and brands. 

She joined ACCCE for two reasons. First, because of ACCCE’s dedication to giving cannabis operators and advisors a common language and a proven system to evaluate and mitigate risk and increase regulatory compliance. Second, because ACCCE provides a platform and brings together like-minded people working to ensure safe, compliant medical and recreational cannabis products. 

We are proud to have an esteemed member like Dede in our network. As our community continues to grow, we find it important to thank our members for their commitment to professionalizing the commercial cannabis industry. Thank you, Dede Perkins, for being such an important part of the cannabis community. Together, we are a part of something great.

The Association of Certified Commercial Cannabis Experts (ACCCE) is dedicated to advancing the professional knowledge and skills of those committed to commercial cannabis risk management.
