The Benefits of Membership
As a member of OSGG you will be a part of one of the largest paid member cannabis organizations in the State of Oregon. Your membership dues will help continue the Guild's efforts to protect and promote family farms, sustainable and clean cannabis farming practices as well as protecting the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program. Many patients rely on OMMP and the medicine they acquire through that program to treat the myriad of medical conditions medical cannabis provides relief for.

A basic membership is the ground level of membership. The vast majority of our members are basic members. Generally these are the farmers themselves, their family members or supportive community members who wish to see the mission of the Guild continue. As a Basic Member you will be an instrumental part of keeping the Guild functioning, keeping our lobbyist active in the capital and keeping up with the latest in legal and legislative changes. Basic members are also invited to "Member Only" events which include educational seminars with industry leaders in every field of cannabis business, and certain Guild celebration parties and events. All Basic Members also receive regular notifications concerning changes in the legal environment, important legislative meetings that need to be attended, and a myriad of other important information as we get it from our network of sources around the state. Basic members are also eligible to serve on the Guild's board of directors.
A Basic Membership is $500 annually.
Our Business Membership is designed for the owner/operators of businesses that wish to promote the Guild's activities as well as market products and services to our very wide base of cannabis community members.

Special Members are individuals or businesses who wish to support at a higher level than the Basic Membership but are not interested in the marketing opportunities of the Business Membership. Many of the Guild's board of directors are Special Members due to the extra amount of time and money they contribute to the Guild's cause. Our Special Members are indeed special and the gratitude and appreciation they receive is part of the their reward, knowing that they stepped up and made a major contribution of time and money to a cause that is dear to us all.
All Special Memberships are done on a case by case basis.
