The Cannabis Alliance, in partnership with Seattle Central College Continuing Education, is excited to present purchasing manager education for the cannabis industry.
This seminar will be focusing on a variety of issues and resolutions that purchasing managers at cannabis retail stores face in their everyday job. It is important to understand what a purchasing manager job title entails and their obligation of responsibility in this fluctuating industry.
Subjects that will be covered will include:
Understanding the importance of farm to retailer relationships
Practicing transparency through effective communication
Understanding our role and why our role is so imperative to the success of this industry.
Utilizing practices with in-taking a new vendor and handling potential new vendors that are looking to establish a business relationship.
Being a purchasing manager in this industry is a lot more complex than we think, with a range of responsibilities that can be overwhelming. Let us provide insight in kick-starting ideas and think "outside the cloud" to make this position more prominent and respected in this and any industry.
