Purpose

The Metrc User Group is the representative body of licensees, medical registrants, and individuals using the Cannabis Tracking System. The purpose of this group is to identify, prioritize, and vote on enhancements to the OLCC’s Cannabis Tracking System (Metrc). The Metrc User Group has been meeting since June 2017 and meets 3 to 4 times annually at the OLCC Headquarters in Milwaukie.

Bylaws

Member Types

The Metrc User Group is comprised of approximately 60 industry members and staff partners (OLCC/Metrc). There are two types of User Group representatives:
• 80% of the Metrc User Group seats are held by recreational licensees and medical registrants using the Cannabis Tracking System.
• 20% are held by individuals who work for a recreational licensee or medical registrant.

Licensee or Medical Registrant: A licensee, medical registrant, or any employee of the licensee/registrant may attend as a participant in the User Group (one participant per meeting per licensee/registrant). If a person is the representative for a license/registrant on the User Group and that person leaves the employ of the licensee/registrant, the licensee/medical registrant will fill that seat with another employee of the licensee/registrant (the individual who left the company is no longer a member of the User Group).

Individual: These seats are held by a specific individual, not a license or medical registrant as a whole. Individuals must be employed by an OLCC licensee or OHA medical registrant that reports through the Cannabis Tracking System at the time of being selected for the User Group. If the person leaves the employ of the licensee/registrant, that person may still participate in the User Group. However, an individual must be employed by another licensee/registrant by the time of the next User Group, or they lose their seat. Employment by a licensee/registrant will be based on whether you are listed in Metrc as an employee at a Metrc facility in any role (including as a license-holder).

Group Application and Selection Process

New Member Postings:
New member openings are filled via an online application posting process. Active posting alerts are done via Metrc notifications and appear as a pop-up message when a user accesses their CTS account. During an active posting period, the application link will also be available on the OLCC Metrc Wiki website in the User Group section. A general notification is also sent to OLCC GovList subscribers.

Applicant Pool:
In addition to selecting members to fill immediate vacancies, the selection team will also create a pool of qualified alternates that would be used to fill in vacancies between open application periods.

Selection Criteria:
Member selection is determined by a number factors including:
• Well rounded representation across all license types;
• Ability to communicate process-driven solutions effectively;
• Industry knowledge applied to compliance tracking software;
• Meet and maintain member type eligibility;
• Adherence to attendance requirements.

Application Submission Period:
An annual open application period will be held after the Q4 meeting to:
• Select new members to fill current openings;
• Create a pool of qualified applicants to fill vacancies created by attrition throughout the current meeting year.

Attendance Requirements

New Member attendance requirement:
New members are required to attend the first meeting scheduled after formal acceptance into the group. If a newly accepted member does not attend their first meeting, the user group position will be forfeited and subsequently filled from the pool of alternate candidates.

Licensee or Medical Registrant Members:
If no representative for the licensee/medical registrant attends for two consecutive meetings, the license/registrant as a whole loses its seat on the User Group. Members in this category may send an alternate attendee associated with the same facility to represent the license at the User Group Meeting if the named member is unable to attend.

Individual Members:
The individual must attend the User Group meetings themselves or it counts as an attendance “strike” with two consecutive absences resulting in the Individual member losing their seat on the User Group. Members in this category may not send an alternate attendee to a User Group meeting in their place.

Membership Termination:

Members who no longer meet the eligibility requirements for participation in the group either through lack of attendance or facility affiliation will be notified via e-mail that they have been terminated from the group. In the case of Licensee or Medical Registrant Members, the notice will be sent to the Industry Administrator associated with the Metrc account as well as the named member for the license. Terminated members are not excluded from reapplying for the group when future openings become available.

Additionally, the OLCC reserves the right to terminate group membership based on any non-compliant activity found to be associated with the member themselves or the member’s represented licensed facility.
