Our Executive Director, Russ Belville, our Deputy Director, Scott Gordon, and our Secretary, Rachel Kurtz, will be among the dozens of speakers gracing three stages at the three-day Seattle Hempfest this weekend. Russ is making his tenth straight appearance on all three Hempfest stages. This is Scott’s second year speaking at Hempfest, but for years now his Booth #425 has featured his lifestyle company, Urb Age Designs. Both of them will be hanging out there when they’re not at the six speaking appearances they have scheduled. Rachel has just moved to Portland from Seattle, where she still sits on the Core Staff of Seattle Hempfest – in fact, she’s the person in charge of the speaking schedules, so thank you, Rachel!
