Links and resources from this interview: Allison's Website: allisonedrington.com Allison on Twitter: @AllyEdrington A Note From Allison: Since we talked about it during the podcast, I thought I'd share a photo of two Thank You posters that I printed for each event sponsor on high quality vinyl and mailed with a thank you letter. I asked our graphic designer to redesign the poster text so it was decluttered, had all other sponsor logos removed except for the highlighted one and had the illustrator sign them. For the last event, I also had some printed with the Ganjier company logo as a thank you for key staff members. A friend who is a fundraiser gave me the idea initially, and I try to find touches to make these special so our sponsors know we appreciate them! Thank you Allison! It was a fun and interesting conversation with great information. I appreciate you sharing insights into the cannabis industry. Have You Subscribed?
