GTI, who is opening a medical marijuana dispensary in Erie, will be holding a town hall and job fair on Thursday, January 25, 2018. The event will take place in the ballroom at The Zem Zem Shrine Club & Banquet Facility located at 2525 West 38th Street. Doors will open to the public at 6:00 p.m.

At 6:30 p.m., GTI’s CEO, Pete Kadens, will speak about GTI and the company’s hopes for Erie, including what the facility will look like, the products the dispensary will sell, what to expect, and what the jobs will be available. After Kadens’ remarks, he and GTI team members will answer some audience members’ questions.  All attendees will have a chance to submit their questions at the sign-in table.    

After the Q&A, GTI and members of the recruitment team will meet one on one with anyone interested in employment opportunities. All job seekers are asked to bring an updated resume.    GTI has held similar job fairs throughout the United States in other markets in which they operate. Its most recent event was in Holyoke, Massachusetts, on Monday, November 6, 2017, and attracted over 500 people! GTI has hosted several community forums over the past year, including Danville, Pennsylvania, to answer questions about the cannabis industry and the company.    

“The Erie town hall & job fair is very important to us. We look forward to meeting with people who are interested in working with us to help create a growing and impactful industry in the local community. We have met many people over the last year interested in employment and vendor opportunities with GTI. We’re excited to come to Erie to add more jobs and grow stronger relationships in the community,” said Pete Kadens, CEO. Kadens was recently named “One of 20 People to Watch in the cannabis industry in 2018,” by Marijuana Business Magazine.    

GTI’s motto is: “Inspire Impact.” GTI’s efforts in Erie focus on inspiring and achieving a positive impact on the community. This event is an opportunity for GTI to hear from the local community and discuss on how they can work together to accomplish common goals in Erie.
