According to the National Indian Gaming Commission, FY2021 Indian gaming revenue jumped to a record $39 billion, a year-over-year increase of 40%. A panel of Indian gaming experts will examine what tribal regulators and operators can do to ensure continued growth and where will the growth occur. Representative Shelley Kloba will chair the NCLGS Committee on Indian Gaming session, which includes the following presenters:
- Rebecca George, Executive Director, Washington Indian Gaming Association
- Daniel Little, Chief Intergovernmental Affairs Officer, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians
- Sheila Morago, Executive Director, Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association
- Valerie Spicer, Founding Partner, Trilogy Group; Chief Gaming Officer, Vetnos
The four-day Winter Meeting will include six NCLGS Committee presentations, two general session panels, morning and luncheon keynote addresses, International Masters of Gaming Law Masterclasses, 2023 igaming legislative preview, two evening networking receptions, and off-site tours.
As the only gaming conference that focuses on legislative decision-makers, the NCLGS Winter Meeting will attract dozens of lawmakers from across the country among the more than 300 expected attendees. Other attendees will include regulators, operators, suppliers, attorneys, lobbyists, media and other stakeholders to discuss all aspects of regulated gambling.
The Sports Betting Regulators Association, a project of the Association of Racing Commissioners International, will once again co-locate with NCLGS, meeting on December 8.
