35 Expert Speakers to Chart Future of Gaming at NCLGS Summer Meeting, July 12-14 Minneapolis


May 26, 2019 (1 month ago) |
MINNEAPOLIS: The National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) today announced the roster expert speakers for its Summer Meeting that takes place July 12-14 in Minneapolis. Registration is open to the public at http://www.nclgs.org/meetings.html
It seems that not a day goes by that doesn't contain a headline story about potential developments with the gaming industry. Legislators have the difficult job of deciding on the best policy for each of their states, said NCLGS President William Coley, a Senator from Ohio. Fortunately, we attract a range of speakers and attendees from all disciplines, including operators, regulators, suppliers, investors, and the media because the issues that are on the minds of legislators affect everyone involved in gaming.

The NCLGS Summer Meeting will focus on critical issues that elected officials throughout the United States will grapple with, ranging from sports betting to wagering on college campuses to the rapid evolution of lotteries. Speakers who will address these and other timely issues include
