The National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) has confirmed the roster of expert speakers lined up for its Summer Meeting that takes place from July 12-14 in Minneapolis.

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.

“It seems that not a day goes by that doesn’t contain a headline story about potential developments with the gaming industry,” said NCLGS President and Ohio Senator William Coley. “Legislators have the difficult job of deciding on the best policy for each of their states. 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 agenda for the three-day event includes six legislative committee hearings that will focus on tribal and commercial casinos, responsible gaming, lotteries, as well as legal, regulatory and operational aspects related to sports betting.

Among the roster of experts are Kevin Braig, Partner, Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick LLP; Beth Bresnahan, Executive Director, DC Lottery; Shelley Buck, President, Prairie Island Indian Community; Ben Freedland, General Counsel, Minnesota State Lottery; Nicole Metzgar-Schall, Corporate Counsel, Sportradar; John Osenenko, Vice President, Business Development, Scientific Games; Dan Spillane, Senior Vice President, League Governance & Policy, National Basketball Association; and Timothy Wilmott, Chairman, American Gaming Association, and CEO, Penn National Gaming
