A national Credit Union Cannabiz Conference, that will exclusively focus on how credit unions can provide banking services for marijuana-related businesses, will be held in Chicago in April, organizers announced Wednesday.

“There is tremendous opportunity, and tremendous risk, involved in banking cannabis funds,” CUCC Executive Director Amy Vigil said. “We realize that this is a new frontier that requires in-depth knowledge of cannabis-related businesses, of compliance and federal regulation. We aim to demystify how credit unions can serve this growing business.”
