NCPG unveils two senior appointments

The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) has officially unveiled Raquel Buari as a new Director for an Organizational Members seat and Stacy Shaw to the role of Vice President following her election. 

Joining the board following the resignation of Chelsea Turner, Buari is now set to serve for the remainder of the term through until July 2022, a duty which she will undertake alongside her Vice President of Compliance role at Four Winds Casinos.

Having led the Four Winds compliance team since 2014, Buari already has experience when it comes to responsible gambling efforts. In addition to this, she has served on the NCPG Planning Committee for the Tribal Summit on Responsible Gaming and is an active Board member for both the Michigan Association on Problem Gambling and the Indiana Council on Problem Gambling. 

Discussing her appointment, Buari commented: “I look forward to continuing to contribute to the NCPG by bringing forward my experience particular to Tribal Gaming, law, and regulation, particularly in regard to casino operators. I’m keenly interested in how operators can continue to effectively improve their initiatives, policies and procedures for guests who are experiencing problems with gambling.”

In addition to Buari, the NCPG also announced the election of Shaw, who is also serving in an Organizational seat for the Oregon Lottery, to the office of Vice President. 

Along with the experience she will bring to the role, Shaw is also set to provide the NCPG with her ‘award-winning’ leadership and strategic direction in CSR initiative, which includes responsible gambling and problem gambling programs.

Keith Whyte, Executive Director of NCPG, concluded: “NCPG is honored to have leaders like Raquel and Stacy. Their perspectives and experiences will be invaluable in helping to guide our organization through these difficult times.”
