International speakers to attend June meeting

The National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) will feature expertise from around the world at its Summer Meeting.  The meeting will take place at the Westin Denver Downtown hotel from June 9th-11th.

NCLGS President Bill Galvano, a senator from Florida and an established leader on gaming issues commented: "Our goal has always been to ensure that lawmakers from around the nation have access to the best and most current information, when they attend a NCLGS meeting. As gaming becomes more of a global industry, our dialogue needs to expand to include the international market,"

The conference organisers expect significant representation from U.S. legislators at the Summer Meeting. In addition, invitations have been extended to lawmakers from Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa.

NCLGS officers Sen. William Coley of Ohio and Rep. Helene Keeley of Delaware, participated in ‘International Legislators Day’ hosted by the British Parliamentary All Party Betting and Gaming Group alongside ICE Totally Gaming in February, in London.

"More than 80 legislators, government officials and regulators from around the world met in London to discuss our respective policy goals and challenges," said Coley, who chairs the Ohio Senate Standing Committee on Government Oversight and Reform. "We want NCLGS attendees to enjoy that same level of interaction, and to broaden their understanding of issues that extend beyond state and national boundaries."

Registration for the Summer Meeting, which is open to the public, is open at www.nclgs.org.
