ENCOD Board Rotates Presidency

Following our Executive Committee meeting in Amsterdam, Maja Kohek has been succeeded by Mauro Picavet for the next 6 months.

Considering ENCOD’s president rotates every 6 months, we thank outgoing president Maja Kohek for her inspiring work and wish her all the best of luck on her academic path. She will remain a member of the Executive Committee.

“Considering my work as secretary at VOC Nederland and thus close cooperation with VOC chairman and ENCOD member Derrick Bergman, for me it seems to make sense to step forward and help in restructuring ENCOD. He knows the organisation, inside and out, for much longer than me and as such, important decisions will always be discussed” said Mauro in a reaction.

“I also count on input from the newly elected Vice President Matthijs Pontier and his experience with the Dutch Pirate Party. Working with people remotely, is something I’ve experienced previously being a worldwide correspondents at The Stoned Society.”

One of the biggest and most important challenges will be to revamp the ENCOD website to something more suitable for the 21st century. We’ve also acquired freedomtofarm.org for specific information on the (importance of) Freedom to Farm. The idea is to make it multi language resource.

We are working to realize a networking event for our members and potential members in Amsterdam. Considering the concentration of people and business in the Netherlands profiting from the grow business, it makes sense if we can activate or reactivate these companies to support us. Because if we do not get the Freedom to Farm, these companies will not be happy with the current progression of (medical) cannabis regulation in Europe in which home growing is not included.

About the network meeting in Amsterdam you will learn more soon. And if you’re going to be at Cannafest, come say hi at the ENCOD booth, 164.
